Abstract -- PolluMap is a new automated system that
monitors the air quality of urban cities and displays the
information using a web service. The system collects
pollution data using mobile hardware modules, transmits the
data regularly using GPRS to a back-end server, and
integrates the data to generate a pollution map of the city
using its geographical information system. The pollution map
is available at anytime from an easy-to-view website. Unlike
previous pollution mappers, the new system provides
continuous update of pollution information in addition to
maximum coverage. It can be easily expanded to new areas
and is cheap to employ. The system has been implemented
and tested in Dubai. Initial results show the effectiveness of
the proposed system.
