YourAir is the world’s first air quality forecasting system that tells you about the pollution in individual streets. The forecasts allow you to make decisions on traffic control, journey planning or personal health where sensitivity to air pollution is a problem.

The forecasts use a special method that allows the changes in air quality from street-to-street to be determined, so that people affected by air pollution can make the healthiest choices for their lifestyle or for the health of their children.
