Description:

This product is an easy-to-use Excel-based macro analysis tool (MAT) for performing comparisons of air sensor data with reference data and interpreting the results. This tool tackles one of the biggest hurdles in citizen-led community air monitoring projects – working with the data. This tool can time match the sensor and reference data streams, average selected data into longer time averages, plot a time series of selected data, plot sensor versus reference data and develop a regression equation. It was developed to be suitable for citizen scientists and other non-experts, but is anticipated to be of use to the broader air sensor user community. This product is to be made available on the Air Sensor Toolbox website for download.
