BreezoMeter Powers Air Quality Data for Hyperlocal Weather Leader WeatherBug
BreezoMeter is pleased to announce a new partnership with hyperlocal, live-weather provider WeatherBug. With more than 20 million unique users per month, WeatherBug has the ability to have significant reach in informing users about what is in the air they breathe, all while checking the weather as part of their daily habits.
Via BreezoMeter’s API, WeatherBug is providing multiple air quality features to their global users on web and mobile apps, such as:
- Intuitive, interactive pollution heatmap that helps users visualize air pollution, wherever they are.
- Air pollution forecast, to know how to plan your schedule, not just around the weather, but also around what is in the air you breathe.
- Actionable health recommendations, per population segment. Some people, including children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with heart and lung diseases, are more susceptible to air pollution, and must be even more aware of the air they breathe in order to take care of their health.
- Pollutant concentrations
- Global air quality index (AQI)- Regardless of where in the world a user wants to see the air pollution level, they will see a unified 0-100 (poor to excellent) AQI, that is color-coded and simply communicated.
Combining layers of data, including governmental monitoring stations, satellite data, traffic conditions, air dispersion models and more, BreezoMeter is able to provide WeatherBug users with additional and imperative information for planning their days, in real-time, and based on their location.
Olivier Vincent, President and General Manager of WeatherBug highlights:
At WeatherBug, our vision is to deliver the ultimate weather experiences for all aspects of people’s lives, and we know that including BreezoMeter's highly accurate, location-based air quality data across our platforms will increase the value of our product, and has the ability to positively affect the health of our consumers.
Air pollution affects millions of people worldwide, and the first step that individuals can take is to minimize their exposure to harmful airborne pollutants, even if they cannot reduce the pollution levels themselves. One of the most challenging issues relating to air pollution is that unless it is extremely severe, people can be unaware of the presence and its long term health effects. Bringing air quality data to millions of users, WeatherBug is helping their users make healthier decisions for themselves and their families.
“WeatherBug has always been regarded as the innovative leader in weather data, and has one of the highest rated apps in the industry. The partnership with BreezoMeter reaffirms WeatherBug's commitment to innovation, accuracy, and quality,” says Uri Schechterman, of BreezoMeter’s Business Development.
