Challenge: Aircheck

Goals and ideas

  • visualise recent sensor data on a map
  • identify and add existing air quality data from external sources
  • gather air quality data on-the-go, develop a mobile solution, measure tracks
  • visualize the track data on a map, too

Mobile sensor

  • add GPS to existing sensor setup, see commit
  • enable push GPS data to Django API (changes for GPS measurements see commit) and/or via MQTT


This map visualisation was hacked during the NASA Space-Apps challenge 2016

The necessary steps were:

  • adapt the django API: request to get the latest measurement values
  • create a map visualisation based on the API inputs
