Impact/Purpose:

The AirMapper is a portable air sensor designed to be used by researchers and citizen scientists to record. The AirMapper is a small instrument case that can be carried or attached to a bicycle (not an EPA supplied item), and includes rechargeable battery power, global positioning system (GPS), optical particle sensor (PM1/PM2.5/PM10), carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor, accelerometer, noise sensor , and combined temperature and humidity sensor. A touch screen interface is also included with the AirMapper. Data is automatically recorded on a ~10 second interval to a text file, with a new file generated and stored to a microSD card each time the device is power-cycled. Citizen scientists or researchers can explore the various measurements on the touchscreen interface or download the data after their measurement period and view online using a free data explorer tool, called Real Time Geospatial Data Viewer (RETIGO) (www.epa.gov/retigo).
