There are a number of tools available to the public to assess air quality in their own area. The Nowcast function on the www.londonair.org.uk website combines data from the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (LAEI) produced on behalf of the GLA combined with monitoring data from the London Air Quality Network (LAQN).

I am currently developing a new Cleaner Air for London website which will be bring together continuous monitoring data from all of London's boroughs and emissions and concentration maps from the LAEI all in one place.
