Air Pollution US

Alec Montgomery
Air Pollution US is for current air quality, and analyzing industrial pollution.


The app provides two main features:

-forecasted/current air quality conditions for US cities.
-analysis on companies and facilities that release toxic pollutants into the air: statistics, a map, and more.


DETAILS:

With live pollution data, if you are especially sensitive to the air or are near harmful pollution levels, you can know not to exercise that day, keep outdoor time to a minimum, or a wear a respiratory breathing mask.

With industrial pollution analysis, the app takes a huge dataset available to the public, and puts it in perspective.

With the application, you can compare facilities, and the chemicals they release into the air. Potentially, depending on many factors, there are health risks associated with the air pollution of a given facility--higher rates of cancer, asthma etc.


FUTURE:

This is really just the beginning for Air Pollution research. In the future, industry data could be cross-referenced with medical records for various areas in the US, or the app's interface and sorting/stat algorithms could be used with other sorts of datasets around the world.

By purchasing this project, you contribute to its mission.

App uses free data provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency--AirNow, and the Toxic Release Inventory.
