Data Science Insight #3: Particulate Matter

Data Science Insight #3: Particulate Matter

Published on: Category: Data Science Insights

Striking insights created using open data, powered by Qualogy’s Data Science team

Particulate Matter affects people’s health more than any other pollutant. Average yearly Particulate Matter concentrations in the Netherlands have been well below the EU limits for the last few years, although typically above the World Health Organization guidelines. Particulate Matter concentrations generally increase strongly during the winter months. What will happen this coming winter? We will update this interactive visualisation once new data is available, so stay tuned!
