As part of the #BrumBreathes air quality initiative, I’ve been working with Sustrans West Midlands and Birmingham City Council’s Environmental Health Department to create an interactive map that enables residents and others to see, explore and understand the air quality where they live, work and travel.

I’m delighted that we are able to launch this on Clean Air Day.  For more information on the map and wider project, head over to the full post on Sustrans’ Website.

For my technical followers, I analysed the data using R and then created the visualisation with a Leaflet.js map as a base with markers and the circular bar chart built in D3.js.
