The Idea 💡

Climate Sextant shows the monthly concentration of PM10 in the Lugano area, in the 2016, correlated to the precipitation level and the temperature. The darker the sky, the higher concentration of PM10 in the air. The higher the sound of the rain, more intense is the precipitation. A specific sound identify each season, to help the user to navigate the space. By exploring the immersive environment, the person is enabled to understand the direct correlation among the data.
