You can help create an air quality surface! As part of NASA's International Space Apps Challenge, the Surface to Air Quality Mission<http://bit.ly/surfacetoairchallenge> challenges people like you to integrate data from satellites, ground-based monitors, and citizen scientists to create an air quality surface that displays the most accurate data for a location and time. You can create algorithms that select or weight the best data from several sources for a specific time and location, and display that information. This challenge will help people use air quality and other data at the neighborhood scale so they can make better decisions.
The focus is on three cities: Los Angeles, California; Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; and New Delhi, India. Data from NASA, EPA and the State Department are being offered and you're encouraged to use data from low cost sensors and models. The challenge provides a set of resources and the organizers plan to post prepackaged data for the three cities within a few days.
People are forming teams now. On October 18 to 20 people will work together in over 220 locations and virtually on this and other challenges about Earth and space.
Check out the challenge<http://bit.ly/surfacetoairchallenge> and form a team today<https://2019.spaceappschallenge.org/auth/signup/>. You can figure out this worthwhile problem.
Please spread the word.
