Project description

Air quality data

A toolkit to retrieve, analyze and visualize data from a variety of air quality sensors.

The scripts include tools to

  • wrap the APIs of various data providers, including Civic Lab Brussels' InfluencAir project, the project, and
  • represent sensors of those different providers as objects with a unified interface to make it easy to interact with them
  • retrieve sensor measurement data through API calls
  • cache those data
  • clean and combine the data
  • describe measurements statistically - individual sensors or groups to compare
  • plot measurement time series
  • find sensors that are geographically close to a point of interest or to other sensors

For usage examples, see the demo notebook.


To install airqdata from PyPI, run
pip install airqdata

A Python 3.5+ environment and several Python packages are required. When installing airqdata with pip, those dependencies will be installed automatically. Otherwise see requirements.txt and in this repository.
