Air quality has a significant effect on our health. The federal Environmental Protection Agency states that it is estimated that about 40,000 people die prematurely each year in the United States due to poor air quality, and this number includes both outdoor and indoor air quality.
For these reasons, keeping track of air quality is crucial, regardless of where you live.
If you’re interested in keeping track of your local air quality, or if you’re just curious about what the air quality is like in other places around the world, this article will tell you everything you need to know about how to find air quality data on google maps with NodeJS. So, let’s get started!
How do I find air quality data on Google Maps?
There are a few different ways to find air quality data on Google Maps. The first way is to use the search bar. Simply type “air quality” into the search bar and Google Maps will display results for any places that have information on air quality. Or you can use filters to refine your search results. For example, you can filter by location, rating, or measure. You can also use a plugin called AirVisual, which displays real-time information about local air pollution. This plugin includes data for over 100 cities across six continents, so it’s a great option if you’re looking for real-time data for a particular city. Another way to find air quality data is by using the API from Google Maps. If you have an API key from Google Maps API, you can use it to request data on air quality by going to the API documentation for the Places API , selecting “Report an issue”, then choosing “Pollution” in the drop-down menu before entering any location and requesting data. How do I find an API? There are a few different APIs that you can use to find information on air quality; however, we recommend using the Current Air Quality API. This API will retrieve historical as well as current data on air quality, including pollutants such as Ozone and particle counts. This API is free to use and provides data in JSON format, making it easy to integrate into your project or website. How does it work? You can provide the API with a ZIP code or coordinates and it will return information on all of the pollutants that are currently being measured at monitoring stations in that area. You
This API will retrieve the current, historical, and forecasted Air Quality Index of any location in the world.
To make use of it, you must first:
1- Go to Air Quality Index API and simply click on the button “Subscribe for free” to start using the API.
2- After signing up in Zyla API Hub, you’ll be given your personal API key. Using this one-of-a-kind combination of numbers and letters, you’ll be able to use, connect, and manage APIs!
3- Employ the different API endpoints depending on what you are looking for.
4- Once you meet your needed endpoint, make the API call by pressing the button “run” and see the results on your screen.
