Mapping Allergies: Innovation in Pollen Data

What if there were a way to reduce the negative impact of seasonal allergies, just by knowing what is in the air? What if you could reduce allergy attacks or asthma attacks, by avoiding dangerous situations, that previously had been invisible? Mapping pollen dispersion is a complicated task, but country by country, BreezoMeter is making pollen data available via our Pollen API, in more than 40 countries worldwide, to complement our Air Pollution API, available in over 80 countries.

Pollen data is a powerful tool to ease symptoms for seasonal allergy sufferers

Delve into this original Scientia report, to learn how big data, integrated via a Pollen Data API, can change the game for allergy sufferers. Discover the impact you can make for people who suffer from not only seasonal allergies, but those suffering from asthma and other respiratory diseases that are exacerbated or triggered by pollen, and uncover an innovative approach to understanding pollen and health.

For the millions of people living with seasonal allergies, a solution to reducing their exposure to the almost invisible cause of their unpleasant symptoms. However, now that BreezoMeter offers a Pollen API that can be integrated into consumer apps, products, and digital health applications, understanding the distribution of pollen spores and pollen types is becoming a reality.

This report that explains how pollen data is changing the game for allergy sufferers, with the help of big data and a novel method for pollen forecasting. Governments, corporations, and individuals now have the ability to interact with pollen data that is relevant to their needs, and location-based. Discover the impact that companies can make with pollen data, and uncover an innovative approach to understanding the effects of pollen on health.

Asthma and allergies

It is well established that asthma and allergies often occur together. According to the MayoClinic, “the same substances that trigger your hay fever symptoms, such as pollen…may also cause asthma signs and symptoms.” This has important ramifications for asthmatics, as an attack could land them in an emergency room in no time. Being able to know that the invisible triggers are present gives a heads up to conditions they need to be aware of. Digital health applications can offer sensitive populations increased awareness, via big data, helping to improve health, simply by integrating pollen data into the user app. Medical device companies can work more closely with patients to understand personal triggers and better tailor treatment plans.

Air Pollution and Allergies

Looking to understand more about the differences between air pollution and pollen? Read more in this dedicated blog post. You’ll start to understand that they are both in the air, both hard to detect just by looking with your eyes, and both can have serious affects on your health. The health affects are different, and so are the ways to reduce your risk. Air purifier companies can incorporate pollen data and air quality data via API to show the complete picture of how their devices are cleaning the air their customers breathe.
