Gdańsk invests in one of the most dense air quality monitoring networks in Poland

The city of Gdańsk in Poland has installed 35 Airly air quality sensors. Data from the devices will allow residents to monitor the level of pollution in every corner of the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship.

During the pandemic, local governments struggled with many problems: how to properly organize the work of hospitals,how to support entrepreneurs, or even how to accept applicants in the office. The city of Gdańsk, however, did not forget about the needs of its citizens, who raised the topic of air quality in the budget.

In November 2021, a comprehensive air quality monitoring service was launched in Gdańsk. “Gdańsk – I breathe here. Air quality sensor system in each district ” is a program that was implemented under the 2019 Civic Budget. Airly installed 35 air quality measuring devices throughout the city of Gdańsk. The sensors provide real-time data on the level of dust concentrations: PM1, PM2.5 and PM10 and additionally measure temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure. The goal of the project is to have sensors monitoring air quality in every district of the city, so that every resident can check air quality in their immediate vicinity.

Thanks to this undertaking, from October 20, 2021, Gdańsk residents can check current air quality in the free Airly mobile application – available on Google Play, App Store and App Gallery, and on the MyAirly map available at map.airly.org.

What are the benefits for local governments and residents of the installation of the Airly system?

  • Reliable and proven real-time air quality data
  • Access to the free MyAirly platform and mobile application
  • The most accurate air quality forecast in the world for the next 24 hours
  • A tool for planning actions to reduce air pollution. (e.g. free public transport)
  • People planning outdoor activities can see if it is really worth exercising and walking on a given day
  • Promotion of local government on the MyAirly platform and in the mobile application
