Toronto's Air Pollution Map

The INHALE - Fresh Air Finder is a new interactive map showing air pollution readings in Toronto. Using the map you can view details of air quality measurements in Toronto neighborhoods.

The data for the map comes from a team of volunteers, wearing mobile air particulate monitoring equipment to measure air quality throughout the city. You can find out more about the mobile monitoring equipment used in the project on the INHALE Air Monitoring FAQS page,

The colors on the map represent the average readings collected in that area. The most polluted areas are shown in red. You can click on a colored area on the map to view more information on the sampled readings taken at that location.

You can view air pollution in the rest of the world on the World Air Quality Index and the Plume Report global maps. Both of these interactive maps provide near real-time air pollution readings at locations around the world.
