Upcoming Webinar - Smart City Air Challenge: Data Use in Community Air Quality Projects

October 26, 2017

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hosting a webinar on data use in community air quality projects as part of the Smart City Air Challenge webinar series. Many communities are collecting data to understand local environmental conditions. Learn how they analyze the data so residents of the community can understand and use it. This webinar will cover:

  • Understanding data from air quality sensors
  • Examples of how community-level air quality data is being used

Date & Time
Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017, noon – 1:15 p.m. EDT


  • John Horel, Professor, University of Utah, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, Global Change and Sustainability Center
  • Don DuRousseau, Director, Research Technology Services, The George Washington University
  • Ethan McMahon, Senior Innovation Advisor, Office of Digital Services & Technical Architecture, Office of Environmental Information, EPA

The webinar will include 50 minutes for presentations and 20 minutes for questions and answers. 

EPA’s Smart City Air Challenge encourages communities to deploy hundreds of air quality sensors and make the resulting data open. In December 2016, Baltimore and Lafayette both won the challenge and received $40,000 each as seed funding to implement their projects.
