HERE Technologies, the location data, and technology platform, announced that Hawa Dawa, a Munich-based company specializing in air quality management, has made real-time pollutant data available via an API on the HERE Marketplace. The data is compiled from a comprehensive set of input sources, ranging from satellites to ground-based public measurement stations to IoT sensors.
Hawa Dawa’s data offering is based on a state-of-the-art technology platform, which is operated from a containerised and secure backend. Deployment of AI ensures continuous enhancement of data quality and coverage. Detailed data are available for NO2, Ozone, Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM10), and pollen. Additionally, the Hawa Dawa API provides values for CAQI (European Common Air Quality Index) and also serves location- and time-relevant risk information for patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases such as Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Hawa Dawa provides comprehensive API documentation for simple integration into different applications (web, mobile etc.). The company plans to add more of its portfolio to the HERE Marketplace in the future. This includes predefined air quality reports and filters, as well as interactive software features such as hotspot detection, air quality predictions, commuter alerting and eco-sensitive route calculation. Smart API functions facilitate the implementation of interactive use-cases in a wide range of application areas, such as traffic management, transport, mobility urban planning, smart cities, health & fitness, real estate, ports & container shipping and finance & insurance.
Karim Tarraf, CEO of Hawa Dawa, said: “By offering our air quality information on the HERE Marketplace, we want to simplify the access to our compiled air quality data for developers. Air quality is a non-neglectable fact in all areas of human life. Therefore, the number of possible use cases is huge.
