Outdoor air quality and weather data used in INDALO ® are collected from an European database. By entering the location of a building, data is retrieved from the database to report on outdoor air quality (O3, NO2, PM2.5 and PM10) and weather at the project site. By the means of extrapolation, it is possible to generate data with an accuracy of approximatly 1 km.
Outdoor air pollution fluctuates with the season. In winter, there may be fine particles pollution, while in summer, ozone or nitrogen dioxide pollution may be more prevalent. That’s why we suggest running simulations on 2 different dates to see how the outdoor air quality affects the pollution levels inside the building.
