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 100+ 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.

Self-Service Download

The daily average data for most of the 12K+ stations can be downloaded freely from the form below. Note that the Air Quality data is currently only available for the past 6 years, from 2014 until now.

Note that all the figures are converted to AQI using the US EPA standard (i.e. we do not publish the concrentrations). For instance, if you check the figures for PM2.5, they correspond to the PM2.5 individual-pollutant AQI. If you want to calculate the overall AQI (or composite AQI”) you need to take the maximum of all “individual AQI”.


If you need the real-time data instead, you can try the API page. It's free too!

Inquiry & Registration

If the above data does not work for you, and you are from an international institution, organization or university you can register your interest with the form below. Note that this registration is only at intent level, for us to consolidate the list of all interested parties, and does not bound you to any obligations.

Write few words about your request - eg: "I would like to get the daily max AQI for Berlin for Winter 2014", "I would like to know the hourly concentration of SO2 for Civil Lines in Delhi on June 18th 2015", "I would like to support your project and give you hand", ..

Contributing to the Project

The World Air Quality project might look like one of those projects comming from big organizations... but it is actually a small team behind it.

Despite its expensive outreach, the project has never received any financial support or fundings from any of the above world institutions, nor from any government or NGO.

The limited income is based on advertising, and is mainly used to cover the infrastructure and hardware cost.

Rather than asking for money, we prefer asking for contributors who can help with their time, for instance to develop this open data platform. We are looking for scientists, engineers, environmental specialists, writers, researchers... Check the contribute 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.
