The project leader behind the new pollution maps being used in the city of Leicester said it is the first time in the UK anyone has been able to use airborne technology to map pollution levels. He said:
This information really helps us understand the sources of pollution within cities, and the human exposure downwind. We are hoping to do carry out further flights as part of the Airborne Air Quality Mapper project - and are looking for potential collaborators and customers.
