The European Environment Agency has created a data visualization called the European Air Quality Index that maps air quality levels for European countries in real time. The visualization uses data from over 2,000 monitoring stations across Europe and ranks air quality on a scale from “good” to “very poor.” Users can click on each air quality indicator to observe the concentrations of pollutants at a particular location as well as how these concentrations and air quality has changed over time.
