Queensland Family Cohort pilot study data from QUT KOALA air quality monitoring initiative

Viewed: 728

This dataset is a sample of data collected from low-cost air quality monitors created by QUT (KOALAs - Knowing Our Ambient, Local Air). The monitors were deployed around Brisbane, Australia, in 2019 and beyond as part of a pilot study for the Queenland Family Cohort.

The dataset is being provided publically here to allow use for the workshop originally held in CitSciVirtual 2021. For the workshop, participants follow a guide to use the dataset for an engaging report on air quality.
