Learn how to use our Air Quality API in this short tutorial.
The API is designed for web, IoT, and mobile app developers. It is a free API that gives you access to the PM2.5 concentration at any given location, both current concentration and a 8-days forecast.
Oslo, Norway, is like many other cities under Corona virus lockdown. Less traffic let us expect good air quality, but the opposite proved true for the end of March. We investigate reasons behind the high PM2.5 values.
Ultrafine particles are so small that they're hard to track and trace, but they seem to harm us nevertheless. They enter our blood and organs, and can "carry" toxic chemicals than might cause serious illnesses.
We are pilot testing our air quality monitors and have started to dig into the first results. We had expected local variations in PM-levels, but it turns out the source is probably found far away from the neighbour's wood burning stove.
