eLichens Provides Open Access to Its Real-Time and Air Quality Forecast Data to Facilitate the Emergence of Services to Citizens
Designer of patented gas sensors and the first comprehensive air quality analysis and prediction platform, eLichens today announced it is providing open data access to its hyper local real-time and air quality forecast data for the city of Grenoble. This will facilitate the development of services to communities, service industries and citizens concerned about the quality of the air they breathe.

The high resolution mapping of Grenoble's air pollution published by eLichens is produced from the integration of various parameters: topographic data, real-time road traffic, meteorology of the city of Grenoble, advanced gas dispersion models. These parameters are supported by real-time and continuous air pollution measurements from the eLichens stations deployed in Grenoble and from the Atmo Auvergne-Rhônes-Alpes reference stations.
Using its own high-resolution mathematical models and air quality measurement stations, eLichens generates maps with 10-meter resolution and provides real-time air quality information and 24-hour forecasts for key pollutants such as particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3) and carbon monoxide (CO).
“Our goal is to provide the public with valuable air quality information to enable informed decision making that can impact various aspects of our daily lives. For example, air quality can change suddenly and vary from place to place. By knowing exactly how good the city's air is, Grenoble residents can quickly and simply identify the best route to work in the morning on foot or by bike, the best time to go running, and avoid the streets that can affect people with respiratory diseases, children and the elderly,” states, Marc Attia, CMO of eLichens.
Access to this precise information by all (also available on smartphone) makes it possible to heighten citizens’ awareness of the air pollution which surrounds them and to encourage those concerned about air quality to adopt beneficial individual behaviors.
Air quality monitoring is a very important issue in all regions of the world. eLichens is working with partners on implementing a much larger scale deployment strategy.
The high resolution air quality map can be viewed on map.elichens.com after authentication. The concentrations of and the air quality index for the main pollutants are accessible via eLichen’s API (programming interface) and are available on request.
eLichens will be present at Vivatech in Paris (Engie stand) on May 24 and 25, 2018.
