BreezoMeter is changing the way people interact with the world, by providing them with the resources needed to make informed choices about what environments they inhabit. BreezoMeter is a big-data analytics platform that allows the gathering of data from thousands of air-monitoring sensors worldwide and provides a real-time location-based map of air-pollution levels at the street level.

BreezoMeter uses a unique algorithm (cutting-edge air-pollution dispersion models and analytics) that understands how air pollution disperses through time and space in real time. Therefore, users can plan daily activities (i.e. running routes), track air quality wherever they are and get real-time air-pollution notifications for important locations together with personalized health recommendations.
