Air pollution remains a serious public–health risk, while also damaging buildings and infrastructure. The lack of quality data-driven insights on air pollution undermines the ability to make informed, evidence-based policy decisions. STRIAD:Air Quality is equipped with a series of advanced analytics and machine learning algorithms to facilitate decision-making and improve livelihoods in and outside of cities.

Air pollution comes from many sources and has many effects. Raw data doesn’t always give a clear picture of the problem. It’s hard to see the wood for the trees and find the underlying trends in noisy, complex data.
There’s more data than ever available to policymakers. But finding the right data to understand how air pollution impacts your community is like finding a needle in a haystack.
Changing environmental policy can be controversial. When aiming to meet important climate commitments, interests can collide and challenges crop up. It’s important to have confidence in the case for the policies we need.

Air quality monitoring in your area of interest can uncover hidden insights and show you where and when air pollution is at its worst. Track different pollutants over time and understand the trends where it matters.
Different people have different exposures to air pollution based on where they live, where they go and what they do. To understand how to fix the problem, the software assesses where it is and who’s affected.
Integrating the latest scientific research with demographic data about your area, our solution provides localised data about the health impact of air pollution, to help you make the case for change and move forward together.
