NEW DNR AIR QUALITY MAPS VIEWABLE ON SMART PHONES AND TABLETS

October 1, 2013

MADISON - Wisconsin's air quality has not only improved in the last 30 years, it's now also easy to see from your smart phone and tablet, thanks to the Department of Natural Resources.

The agency has made its new air quality maps viewable from the popular hand-held devices, making it easier for the public and businesses to look at current air quality conditions, check the latest information on Air Quality Advisories or learn about special Air Quality Notices.

"We're always looking for better ways to share real-time air quality information with the public," said DNR Air Program Director Bart Sponseller. "Our new maps are not only more user-friendly for your computer, you can now quickly access them away from home, on the go, wherever you are."

In addition, Sponseller noted the maps have helpful graphs of hourly pollutant measurements at each DNR air monitoring site. The maps are also available on the Air Program website airquality.wi.gov/StateMapping.aspx and allow users to access air monitoring data around the clock.
