It provides the following information: Pollutant Concentrations, AQI, Historical and Forecasted data, and more.
You can research the air quality in your city of interest, worldwide locations, and past and future readings. It can be used by a variety of users such as those who have allergies and want to know the air quality before going outside on a given day.
Plus, it is useful for businesses that are in the business of building materials or industrial manufacturing that need to know the air quality before constructing or producing.
But most importantly, this API is useful for people that want to protect themselves, others and nature from toxic pollution of the environment.
No matter what the reason; we believe you will find Air Quality API useful.
Air quality not only affects you in your day-to-day life. It also has a substantial impact on the economy. Different air pollutants influence different industries and sectors. Some sectors may be more affected by air pollutants than others due to their location or use of specific equipment. This can lead to higher rates of absenteeism or higher health care costs. Higher costs can lead to higher production costs, which can adversely impact businesses overall profitability.
According to Air Quality API there are various factors that determine in which areas of a city pollution is most likely to occur:
High population densities can lead to increased incidence of pollution for several reasons. First, when there are a lot of people in a small area, there is more traffic which leads to more emissions from automobiles and other vehicles. Second, densely populated areas often lack adequate ventilation systems which can cause pollutants to linger longer than they would in less populated areas.
Pollution tends to be worse during periods of high humidity and rainfall because pollutants do not have as far to travel before reaching the ground or being washed away by rainwater.
Older buildings with less effective ventilation systems are more likely to have higher incidences of pollution than newer buildings with better insulation.
This API will retrieve the current, historical, and forecasted Air Quality Index of any location in the world.
