Smog is an Android app to warn the user of bad and dangerous air pollution in the nearby area. The app is written in Java and currently under active development.

I started off with the air quality values provided by the project “luftdaten.info” which is a citizen and volunteer driven open data project by the OK Lab Stuttgart, Germany. The aim is to provide air quality data from the next station and to warn the user if air quality nearby is bad. Whats also very nice is the option for users to build their own station easily and integrate it into the network.

Next steps for the app are:

  • integrate data from other German and international air quality data providers
  • let the user choose stations to observe
  • run in background
  • provide a map that unifies all stations available
