Smart Emission 2

Smart Emission 2 will focus on citizen science for air quality and low-cost participatory monitoring of environmental qualities in cities. This follow-up project focuses on data visualization, data use by citizen scientists, data quality, and communication. The project has four objectives:
1. Developing a multi-sensor-approach for low-cost citizen sensing, and improve a shared Sensor Spatial Data Infrastructure (sensor SDI) by connecting and re-using data portals, API’s, and sensor types.
2. Development and participatory assessment of a toolkit for flexible Sensor Data Visualization
3. Experiment with the data quality of the sensor data, assessing fit-for-purpose accuracy
4. Communicating with a Linked-Data Concept Map, citizens can learn and educate others on the key concepts and metadata provided with sensor tools, data-infrastructure and data quality assessment.
Representatives of citizen initiatives are included in this study, following principles of citizen science.
