The Environmental Agency and the Mayor of London have launched a new website which
maps pollution in Central London. The images of the capital’s most polluted streets
are updated hourly with news of pollution levels, allowing users to zoom in on particular
areas and avoid the dirtiest streets on their route home. www.londonair.org.uk shows
details of several types of pollution, including nitrogen dioxide. If the initiative
proves successful, there are plans to extend it to the rest of London.
This map shows the latest pollution levels as recorded at pollution monitoring
sites across Greater London.

These maps are of the London Air Quality Network and contain information
about air quality in and around Greater London. Measurements are collected either
hourly or twice daily from continuous monitoring sites, processed and checked then
placed on this web site with an hourly update.
