Air Quality Historical Data Platform
Institution & University Registration


Since the begining, the World Air Quality Index (WAQI) project team has always been keen on providing a transparent Air Qualitty Infomration to the world citizens.
The WAQI project has also always been keen on providing historical Air Quality Data to relevant institutions and organizations working in the area of environmental awareness, air quality monitoring, as well as health and epidemiological studies. Here are few of our partners and colleagues to which we have been providing historical air quality data information:

United Framework



In order to make the historical Air Quality Data dissemination even more relevant, the World Air Quality Index team has been investigating with the most relevant international institutions the possibility to setup an open data framework. Here are fews of the institutions we have engaged:

  • WHO - World Health Organization
  • UNEP - United Nation Environmental Program
  • UNIDO - United Nation Industrial Development Organization
  • WMO - World Meteorological Organization
  • GEO - Group on Earth Observations
  • WRI - World Resource Institute
  • CCA - Climate & Clean Air Coalition

The open data framework objective is to provide unlimited and free access the world historical and real-time Air Quality data from the 70+ countries covered on aqicn.org Everyone - both institutions as well as citizens - agrees that this is not only a good idea, but that it should *just* happen.

Supporting the Project

The World Air Quality project might look big, but it is actually a small and motivated team who is doing the work.

The project has never received any financial support or fundings from any of the above world institutions, nor from any government or NGO. The project income is based on advertising, and the largest part of it is used to support the IT cost. The rest of the income is used for attending conferences as well as several experimentations and monitor & sensor development.

Developing this open data platform requires time and effort. It does not just happens overnight, but it is the fruit of collaboration between environmental and health scientists and engineers. It requires more IT infrastructure and dedicated engineers for the implementation. This is why we need help. Your help! Check this page for more info.

Data Credits

The open data framework would not be possible without the work from the worldwide EPA, which should get the credits for their monitoring programs.
