  • Webinar #2, fall 2020: Stockholm Sensing Platform – mapping urban micro climates

    Air quality, heat, noise. These are environmental factors that deeply affect the well-being of people living in cities. Yet, they are hyper-local, fast-pace changing phenomena that are hard to snapshot. The Stockholm Sensing Platform explores the use of fleets of custom-designed mobile and low-cost sensors. By doing this, unique characteristics of Stockholm’s microclimates are captured, and provides use cases in the field of environmental monitoring, civic participation and public health.
