On average, each of us breathes over 3,000 gallons of air each day. A recent study links polluted air in China to 1.6 Million Deaths a Year. We share this planet and we share the responsibility to take care of it as well.
What it does
WorldAQI is simple iPhone app which aggregates the air quality data across the major cities around the world . As of today we provide air quality information for entire north america, all major cities in Europe, China, India, Malysia and we are constantly working to add more countries and cities through our partners.
How I built it
We use trnql framework to determine the location and weather information for that location while fetching Air Quality through our REST API's
Challenges I ran into
Aggregating data sets of different formats and standards into our repository
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
If my app brings some awareness among people about the air quality then I'll consider that being my biggest accomplishment
What I learned
I learned some shocking information about how bad is the air we breathe and how it affects with climate change
What's next for World Air Quality
To add More Cities, More Countries and More Continents to our database and bring awareness to people about the very air they breathe
