Weather and environmental measurement specialist Vaisala has launched a new hyperlocal air quality reporting toolkit that provides high-resolution, actionable intelligence for proactive air quality management in cities.
The Air Quality Forecast subscription service combines air quality modeling and measurements to forecast air quality down to 15m resolution.
