Air Quality Dashboard

In May 2019, the government of Mongolia decided to ban the burning of raw coal in lieu of “enhanced” coal fuel. They claimed this would reduce air pollution which is caused, in part, by the burning of coal for heat and cooking in areas that don’t have proper access to infrastructure.

To answer whether the coal ban was working or not, Robert Ritz built The app has a number of dashboards to monitor the air quality of the city and is a great example of how you can make data accessible to the benefit of everyone.

Making data accessible online requires a lot of interdisciplinary knowledge. Anvil simplifies the discipline of web development to allow you to focus on bringing your data to life. You can write your whole web app in Python and build dashboards in your favourite frameworksno HTML, CSS or Javascript required!

Some highlights of Robert’s app include:

  • Yearly view that also highlights the air quality index after the coal ban.
  • Monthly view that shows the air quality index and temperature ranges for two months.
  • Daily view that shows a selected day compared to days that are identified as having similar weather.

We highly recommend taking a look at the app:
