Access the Latest Air Quality and Human Impact Information with Air Quality Aware
Esri has released a new mapping app, Air Quality Aware, that fuses data from the EPA’s AirNow program, NOAA’s National Weather Service wind forecast, and the American Community Survey to provide location intelligence on current air quality and its impacts on local communities.
At a national level, areas are color-coded according to EPA’s Air Quality Index, with magenta and purple representing hazardous and very unhealthy air quality. As you zoom in, you can see the air quality scores reported at each individual air quality monitoring station. You can click on any station for more information about the pollutants and concentrations reported at that location. You can also search for or click any place on the map to get more information about current and forecasted air quality, wind speed, and insights about the vulnerable population in each place.
You can find more details about the Air Quality Aware app on the ArcGIS Blog.
