Localised social platform for city-wide air quality information and change
UrbanZee measures entire cities in hyper-local detail and sells such information and related services through a social platform that also enables change. We present air-quality information in a way that is easy to understand and also provide the necessary detail if people want to learn more.
Services for concerned city citizens
Residents and visitors of a city make daily decisions on their activities in a city. We provide a social platform and mobile App to aid in their decision-making, such as which route to take to maximise breathing to the best available air.
The social platform enables people to connect with the community and join or initiate local campaigns. These campaigns help to make a lasting change in collaboration with local governments and businesses.
The provided services include:
Hyper-local information on air quality (e.g. which parks are the cleanest or which schools have the safest air)
Request local measurements (e.g. if your house is far from the nearest sensor)
A product channel to buy local products that improve the personal situation (e.g. electric scooters or air purifiers)
Services for real-estate companies
Research shows that real-estate prices are affected by the levels of pollution around a property. We provide the following services for real-estate owners and real-estate agents:
- Reports based on a snapshot measurement (e.g. the neighbourhood of a property)
- Continuous monitoring with online reporting
- Web-integration of air quality information
Services for local governments
Local governments do already measure air quality, but are limited by costs to measure areas in hyper-local detail. The equipment used by UrbanZee provides indicative measurements and covers the most commonly compounds used on air quality indices: Sulphur dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Carbon monoxide (CO), Ozone (O3), coarse dust (PM10), fine dust (PM2.5) and ultra-fine dust (PM1) .
Services offered include:
- Cost-effective and continuous city-wide measurements
- Measure and report on specific areas of a city
- Forecasts on air quality
- Active daily air quality management (e.g. redirecting traffic around highly polluted areas)
