iMONITOR includes monitoring of air quality (PM2.5, ozone, and nitrogen dioxide), and weather conditions (rainfall, humidity, and temperature) by using a standalone weather station. The station will be installed inside the residential area, thus providing a highly accurate and real-time result for the designated area.

There are some readily available weather forecast and air quality data online. Most of them are using Satellite data and statistical analysis to predict the environmental conditions at a global scale. The spatial resolution is typically about 10 km or more, and the data is not real-time.
