A tool is born
With a no-go logo
One of the new features we added was to make it easy to compare monitoring node data against different background reading types. For example, you might want to compare a single node against other urban nodes, or other roadside nodes. Click on a node on the map to get started, and then click on Compare. The charts below show the data from our Brixton node over the past month. It is generally similar for PM2.5 particulates but generally higher than average for NO2.
Problems come in Threes
The observant amongst you will notice that there’s a break in the Brixton data from 1 December. This was due to an outage with Three, the mobile network, and the node took a while to reconnect with the network. On the map, you may also notice there is something a bit weird with one of the Croydon nodes - we’re investigating. We also found a node way outside London, but we’re not exclusive!
Here’s our report for the last 30 days from our Brixton node. You can see that PM2.5 levels don’t breach WHO guidelines that often, but NO2 is a different story, with most days breaching WHO guidelines. It is particularly high around 6pm Tuesday-Friday, coinciding with the evening rush hour.
We have added tools and features that we find useful and hope others do too. Now that we have a platform we can build on, we would love to get your feedback on what to build next. You can visit our product roadmap and add feature requests or vote on existing requests. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Final note on branding: we were excited last week to find what we thought was a rather cool logo. However, we’ve realised it’s a bit too similar to another super-cool air quality data company. Guess there are only so many ways to represent air! You’ll be seeing our next attempt soon.
