MetOne BAM 1020 station
Luft-Daten DIY station
Publishing data on the World Air Quality Index world map is free and simple.Both professional and DIY air quality monitoring stations are accepted, but DIY stations, such as luftdaten, must go through an additional data quality control, to ensure high quality data accross the map - more explanations here.
Once your data is validated, you will get a dedicated page for your station where you can see the real-time data, the Air Quality and weather forecast, as well as the historical data - all for free.
Uploading the data
- Either you already have a website (or a feed such as thingspeak) from which we can collect the data from your stations. In this case our system will periodically load your page, extract the data and then republish it on our map. Check the feed examples for website examples.
Either you do not have a website, but you have a station, and you would like to "push" the data directly to our system. In this case, you will need to write a small programm to "post" your station data via our upload API. We have code example for Arduino and Python. The code samples are available from the upload API page.
If you fall in the first category (have a website), or if you have any doubts, send us a message using the form below. If you fall in the second category, and want to programatically post the data via our upload API, check our data upload scripts and API page.
