Measure and plot air pollution on a map using small sensors
The EPA provides a toolbox for citizen scientists to go out and monitor the air quality in their neighborhood with the accuracy of a professional. The website gives information on how to use air sensors with a guidebook to EPA-approved devices and even performance evaluations so you choose which one works best for you. Once you’ve collected data, you can plot it on a map, as well as read about what your air sensor readings actually mean. The EPA aims to empower citizens by providing a means to report and monitor air pollution, as well as inform the public about air quality and what they’re doing about it.
