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. The system leverages advanced modeling techniques using data fusion and other information sources, such as air quality monitoring networks and local reference stations. Accuracy and localization can be further enhanced when paired with Vaisala’s AQT530 compact air quality sensor.

Marko Torvinen, head of forecasting, weather and environment at Vaisala, said, “Vaisala’s new Air Quality Forecast subscription service can be up and running in a city in less than a week. The combined power of our weather and environmental intelligence, leveraging 20 years of research and pioneering innovation, provides dependable information decision makers can confidently act on now and into the future.”

Providing proactive air quality insights designed exclusively for cities, Vaisala’s Air Quality Forecast promotes environmental stewardship by delivering air pollution visualization: advanced dispersion modeling, forecasting, and air quality measurements create a unique view of emissions and their impact on the environment; actionable hourly forecasts: location-based predictions allow agencies to alert communities when air quality indices reach critical levels; and reliable, comprehensive, accurate, hyperlocal measurements: precise evaluation empowers decision makers to take action to decrease air pollution in communities worldwide.
