Google Project Air View

24th February at 17:30 | Oceans 11, Google EMEA HQ, 4 Barrow Street, D04 V3A0

On the 24th Feb at Google Foundry we celebrated the launch of Ireland’s biggest ever air quality data hack! Over the 16 month duration we collected over 50 million records at 5 million locations of street level air quality data for Dublin.

National and international experts asked the question, what this means for cities like Dublin – what can we learn from this data? How can we unlock new insights? How can air quality data be used to support city policies and climate action. How can it benefit citizens and communities?

Air Quality Data Hack

25th -26th February | Google Foundry, 4 Barrow Street, D04 V3A0

Google Project Air View Data - Dublin City (May 2021 - August 2022)

Data was collected by Google and Dublin City Council as part of Project Air View Dublin. Google's first electric Street View car equipped with Aclima’s mobile air sensing platform drove through the roads of Dublin City measuring street by street air quality.

The pollutants determined are: Carbon Monoxide(CO), Carbon Dioxide(CO2), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), NO (nitric oxide), Ozone (O3), and Particulate Matter PM2.5 (including size resolved particle counts from 0.3 - 2.5 μm).
