Air Bubble

Team Name: 
Team Leo and Sons

Hi, were are Team Leo and Sons and this is our project Air Bubble.

 

Air Bubble is a way to visualise varying differences in air quality across different locations in Tasmania.

 

People submit their postcode via the webapp and the area of the closest air monitoring station is shown on the map. The bubble machine then responds with a display of your air quality. More Bubbles means cleaner air and less bubbles means more particulates (less clean air).

> Businesses

> Residential areas

The system will not only display present coverage, but also utulising predictive modelling, will give an approximate indication of future coverage, and alert residents and businesses to any immediate or future threat or impedance.
