Google Street View to Expand Mapping of Air Pollution

Google would expand its innovative, street-by-street air pollution mapping program to an international fleet of 50 Google Street View cars. The programme is a partnership with Aclima, a San Francisco company that maps air quality on a block-by-block scale. The announcement comes a day after a report from the European Court of Auditors found that air pollution was the 'biggest environmental risk to health in the European Union', causing about 400,000 premature deaths a year. The Google and Aclima expansion builds on three years of research conducted in Los Angeles, San Francisco's Bay Area and California's Central Valley that produced one of the largest data sets on urban air pollution of its kind ever collected. The Aclima sensors will measure carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and particulate matter.
