New UK-wide map of air pollution; insights into nitrogen dioxide levels across the country and within towns and cities 4 December 2017 EarthSense Systems—a joint venture between the University of Leicester and aerial mapping company BlueSky—has published MappAir, the first high resolution nationwide map of air pollution. Combining data from satellites and its own air quality monitoring sensors together with open source data, EarthSense used complex modeling techniques to create the highly accurate map. Initially available for the whole of the UK at 100-meter resolution, MappAir shows how air pollution, specifically nitrogen dioxide, changes across the country and within towns and cities, highlighting likely sources and potential clean-air refuge areas. Using the British National Grid, EarthSense divided the UK into 100 meter squares. Air pollution readings from satellites ...
