How corre­la­ting Anony­mous Mobile and Air Pollu­tion data saves lives.

Back­ground

With major concern of air pollu­tion and health impli­ca­ti­ons there is a growing effort in measu­ring, redu­cing and preven­ting hazar­dous air pollu­tion. Government and corpo­rate orga­ni­sa­ti­ons have risen up to the respon­si­bi­lity of prof­fe­ring new solu­ti­ons. An important part is how open data from various sectors will pave the way for new solu­ti­ons.

Data­sets used

Toxic gases are not the only source of air pollu­tion. Despite over 7 million deaths yearly being recor­ded world­wide due to inha­la­tion of small dust parti­cles, its effect is often over­loo­ked in air pollu­tion analy­sis. Corre­la­ting health­care statis­tics with infor­ma­tion diagno­sed cause will provide a clear picture of important focus areas. Open data from the Federal Envi­ron­men­tal Agency on CO2 and NOx measu­re­ments, weather data, mode of trans­por­ta­tion and traf­fic stops (Adap­tive and fixed) are being utili­sed to under­stand the full picture.

Adva­neo Data Market­place

Signi­fi­cant amount of resour­ces is needed in mining, sorting and format­ting data­sets from multi­ple sectors. Medi­cal prac­ti­tio­ners only possess medi­cal data, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion compa­nies only possess mobi­lity patterns and Government has geogra­phic and demo­gra­phic data. These data­sets are often in various formats spread across multi­ple plat­forms. The Adva­neo market place helps corpo­rate bodies and Envi­ron­ment protec­tion agen­cies see the rele­vant data­sets in one place. The market place has been desi­gned to ensure:


Data Sover­eig­nty: In addi­tion to the open data, the data­sets provi­ded by other orga­ni­sa­ti­ons resi­des with them. Adva­neo veri­fies the source and acts as a broker by provi­ding a summary (meta­data) of the data­set. A seam­less direct connec­tion will be made with the data provi­der and data user.


Veri­fied Data Endpoints: All the data set provi­ded on the market­place have been veri­fied to have actual data end points.


Cate­go­ri­sed Rele­vant Data: Using keyword sear­ches, cate­go­ries rele­vant for each data­set are displayed helping the user see how mobile data can be useful in Air pollu­tion domain.


Busi­ness Oppor­tu­nity: Compa­nies can leverage on the data provi­ded in the market place to gain full under­stan­ding of all the actors, and utilise data provi­ded in provi­ding solu­ti­ons.

Impact

Open data are usually released to solve problems. An important problem as comba­ting air pollu­tion and the hazar­dous effects will depend on the avai­la­bi­lity of such data­sets. More import­antly, a full picture is requi­red of rele­vant data­sets from multi­ple sectors. The Adva­neo data market place will prove to be a reli­able resource.
