EPA’s Smart City Air Webinar Challenge Series – big data in communities!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a series of webinars<https://developer.epa.gov/smart-city-air-challenge-webinar-series/> to help communities design effective air quality projects. The webinars will keep up the momentum of the Smart City Air Challenge, which encourages communities to deploy hundreds of air quality sensors and make the resulting data open. Local governments partnered with sensor manufacturers, data management companies, and others to create strategies for collecting and using the data. EPA awarded $40,000 each to two communities: Baltimore, Maryland, and Lafayette, Louisiana. The awards were based on their strategies, including their plans to share their data management methods so others can benefit.
The next webinar in this series will take place on July 18, 2017, at 12 p.m., ET. Tune in as the winners of the Smart City Air Challenge talk about their efforts to deploy air quality sensors in their communities. The agenda includes topics such as progress, challenges, community engagement, data management, and next steps. Please circulate this announcement to others who might be interested.
