Detailed datasets will be available on Here for NO2, ozone and particulate matter
Munich-based air quality management specialist Hawa Dawa has made real-time pollutant data available via an API on the Here Marketplace.
The data is compiled from a comprehensive set of input sources, ranging from satellites to ground-based public measurement stations to IoT sensors.
Here Technologies’ marketplace aims to facilitate the exchange and monetisation of location data assets from trusted sources.
Detailed datasets are available for NO2, ozone, particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10), and pollen. Additionally, the Hawa Dawa API provides values for the European Common Air Quality Index (CAQI) and also serves location- and time-relevant risk information for patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Hawa Dawa’s data platform makes use of artificial intelligence (AI) which is operated from a containerised and secure backend. It claims the use of AI ensures continuous enhancement of data quality and coverage.
For correlation analytics based on Hawa Dawa data, other data sources from Here, such as traffic information and analytics, or from the Here partner ecosystem, including weather data, can easily be combined.
Hawa Dawa provides comprehensive API documentation for simple integration into different applications. The company plans to add more of its portfolio to the Here Marketplace in the future. This includes predefined air quality reports and filters, as well as interactive software features such as hotspot detection, air quality predictions, commuter alerting and eco-sensitive route calculation.
“Air quality is a non-neglectable fact in all areas of human life. Therefore, the number of possible use cases is huge”
Smart API functions facilitate the implementation of interactive use-cases in a wide range of application areas, such as traffic management, transport, mobility urban planning, smart cities, health and fitness, real estate, ports and container shipping and finance and insurance.
“By offering our air quality information on the Here Marketplace, we want to simplify the access to our compiled air quality data for developers,” said Karim Tarraf, CEO of Hawa Dawa. “Air quality is a non-neglectable fact in all areas of human life. Therefore, the number of possible use cases is huge.
“We trust in the creativity of the developer community to take this opportunity forward and enhance their products with our data and contribute to healthier lives and economic wealth.”
