Equator, an Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration, created a set of mobile sensors with incorporated GPS receivers to retrieve pollution data on a street basis in different locations. The results of the measurements for every specific area can be visualized in a 3D model.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
