LUBW Stations

Air Measurements

The LUBW mangages 50-80 aktive measurement stations across Baden-Württemberg, which provide hourly information on three main air pollutants (see Figure 1):

  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Ozone
  • Particular matter (Feinstaub)

The data is public and can be downloaded from the official web-page: https://www.lubw.baden-wuerttemberg.de/luft/messwerte-immissionswerte#karte

LUBW REST API

Air measurment data collected by the LUBW (Nirtogen oxides, Ozone, Particular Matter) is also provided by a REST-Service for the BigGIS project. The service is not public and delivers the current measurement value of each measurement station and each pollutant in json format. The service also allows to aquire data on air pollutant from Bavaria, Thuringia, Saxony-Anhalt and Schleswig-holstein.

Data on air pollutants across different states of germany can be acquired by the Federal Environmental Agency: https://www.umweltbundesamt.de/daten/luftbelastung/aktuelle-luftdaten#/start?s=q64FAA==&_k=ep8c63

Meteorological Station at FZI

In January 2017 a meteorological station was mounted at the roof of FZI for measuring air pressure, temperature, wind speed, precipitation, humidity and global radiation (see Figure 2). The measurements serve for calibrating and validating the sense boxes. The measurement device will be dismounted in April 2018.
