Contributing to the World Air Quality Index project

Share: /contribute/

con·trib·ute
verb
  • to be a part of a group or an activity and help it to be successful "Davis contributed half of this time to the launch of the project"
  • to give money, goods, or your time and effort in order to achieve something "he contributed more than $500 to the center"
  • help to cause or bring about. "gases that contribute to global warming"
The World Air Quality project might look big, but it is actually a small and motivated team who is doing the work. Even though we are already busy every day maintaining the project, there are many things that we still want to achieve:
  • Open Data Platform for accessign real-time and historical Air Quality Data
  • World Ensemble forecast modeling
  • Statistical and deep learning based data facts
  • Researching new accurate sensors for gas pollutants
  • New visualization solutions for the real-time observations and forecast
  • API for accessing the real-time observations and forecast
  • Time travel Machine - for seeing the air quality at any day back in time
  • Applications for i-phone, Windows 10, etc..
We also want to spend time of less technical matters, such as writing more vulgarization articles:
  • Health effect of sulfur dioxide for area close to volcanic mountains
  • Ultra fine particles (PM1) - are they more dangerous than PM2.5 and is it worth measuring them.
  • CO2 - is it an outdoor air pollutant, a climate warmer or an indoor pollutant?
  • Indoor Air Quality - what are the pollutant to be aware of?
  • As well as the translations to new languages
And those are just few of the things - the list will get much longer over time!

As one can imagine, the current project team is just too small to be able to handle all of this work, and this is why we need help. Your help!

If you would like to contribute with your own time, then welcome to the team. We do believe a motivated team is much more inspiring than money, and we do value contribution from the real citizens.

If you are part of a larger organization, and you would like to support the project financially, then what about getting one of our GAIA Air Quality monitoring stations and starting to monitor the Air Quality in your area?
