SmartAQnet 2020 Dataset
Additional titles:
(Abstract) This is the dataset collected by the SmartAQnet project. The dataset was collected in the model region of Augsburg, Germany between 2017 and 2020 and contains 248,572,003 observations recorded by over 180 individual devices, including ceilometers, Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS), mid- and low-cost stationary measuring equipment using meteorological sensors and particle counters, and low-weight portable measuring equipment mounted on different platforms such as trolley, bike, and UAV. Detailed description of the dataset could be found in the dataset discription paper "SmartAQnet 2020: A New Open Urban Air Quality Dataset from Heterogeneous PM Sensors" (DOI: 10.14644/dust2021.001).
