Why This Guide Matters
If you are planning to use air quality information in a product integration or marketing campaign, it is your job to ensure the data does not mislead people. After all, this information has real-world consequences for people’s health.
As air quality drastically changes from one hour to the next, and from one street to another, the data needs to be hyper-local and real-time to be actionable. Many providers give significantly delayed information or data that was recorded miles away from the end user’s actual location, which renders the insights irrelevant in most cases.
