Who is involved?
The Air Quality Data Commons (AQDC) was created by the Air Sensor Workgroup (ASW), a collaboration of experts from academia, government agencies, sensor manufacturers and others from the private sector. The ASW supports the development and use of a wide variety of air quality sensors to measure air quality, so communities can utilize the data to advocate for cleaner air. Air quality data should be open and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable, and the ASW plays an integral role in ensuring access, by providing infrastructural support, including the development of the AQDC and the adoption of data standards and standardized terms. ASW was first convened by Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).
Both ASW members and AQDC's users use the platform to share, store, use, and discuss air quality data and sensors.
