  • Community Spotlight: West Coast Calibration Factor Study

    Each time a PurpleAir sensor is installed, and air quality data is uploaded to the PurpleAir Map, the quality and reach of our community increases. In this post, we highlight the results from a scientific study and discuss what it means in the bigger picture. The network improves with each additional sensor, and studies like the one in this post are also part of the PurpleAir story.

  • Hyper-local, Real-time Air Quality Map

    The air we breathe has direct consequences on our health. According to The NOAA, "Poor air quality is responsible for an estimated more than 100,000 premature deaths in the U.S each year". PurpleAir has designed a hyper-local, real-time air quality map that targets the need to measure and visualize air quality.
