Modern Systems for traffic control and system control are increasingly dependent on data of air quality and air pollution. Transit traffic could for example be routed around congested areas at days with a high air pollution forecast.

For these and other use cases we provide you with an easily usable interface to global data of air quality and aerosols.


  • Weather data in hourly intervals up to 3 days in advance
  • Global coverage 
  • Response format: JSON, CSV, XML
  • depending on the package between 10.000 and 1.000.000 accesses per day
  • Optionally deployment of a dedicated server
