airQmap is a powerful platform which allows people with limited or no air pollution expertise, such as city personnel or volunteers, to carry out air quality measurements and to get a detailed view on the air quality at street level. This approach allows to produce air quality maps at a feasible cost for cities and municipalities. With airQmap, detailed exposure maps are produced based on mobile air quality measurements by cyclists or pedestrians. They allow to take the numerous influencing factors into account while offering a high level of detail. airQmap has been successfully used in cities such as Antwerp, Ghent, Brussels, Liege, Amsterdam and Oslo, and in Belgian municipalities such as Mol, Beringen and Zutendaal. Some of the resulting online maps can be consulted on the website: www.airqmap.com.
