Village Green Project: Engaging Communities in Air Pollution Awareness
These minute-to-minute measurements are streamed from the pilot station to AirNow, quality controlled, and displayed in real time on the STI-developed Village Green website. Using the AirNow infrastructure, STI engineered this interactive, mobile-friendly website to display up-to-the-minute information in a format easily accessible to the public.
STI also worked with EPA to develop messages for real-time, short-term air quality data and integrated the messages into the Village Green Project. The messages were designed to put short-term (e.g., 1-minute) air quality data into context for health impacts and provide recommendations for modifying public behavior and activity during high-pollution episodes.
