Urban air pollution remains a serious environmental problem, and as urban air quality declines, the risk of health issues such as stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, as well as chronic and acute respiratory diseases increase. Air pollution also contributes to the damage of building materials and cultural objects.
The dearth of comprehensive data on the air quality of mid-scale urban areas such as cities and counties means actionable insights based on this data, which can inform evidence-based policymaking, are also scarce. This prevents governments and citizens from taking decisive action to improve their health and reverse environmental damage. It is time for this to change.
The Trim air quality project will provide a baseline of air quality within the city of Trim, with the aim of gathering data to inform the development of policy and provision of sustainable solutions for improving air quality and reducing emissions.
This project will utilise Trilateral’s Sociotech approach to risk and analytics requirement assessment which involves bringing together expertise in data science, social science, data engineering, data protection, ethics, software development, cloud engineering and UI/UX to understand and work together in a co-design manner. In this work we will leverage our STRIAD® cloud-based SaaS web application hosted on AWS to support with ingestion, mapping, and visualisation of air quality data.
The project is funded by the Department of Rural & Community Development & Meath County Council.
