Openly available air quality data: not just blue-sky thinking

Air pollution is responsible for one out of eight deaths around the world. OpenAQ and a community of open data lovers set out on a mission, guided by the simple question: what if all the world’s air quality data were openly available?

By filling a basic data-access gap, OpenAQ has enabled the fight against air inequality, the unequal access to clean air.
