Our Streets Chorlton – exploring the impact of weather on local air quality
February 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT
As part of Our Streets Chorlton, Open Data Manchester has been carrying out data monitoring and collection, including local air-quality measurements and traffic surveys.
Some of this data has come from external sources such as Transport for Greater Manchester or Manchester Urban Observatory, but much has come from the Chorlton community itself, including road-side traffic surveys, a network of automatic traffic counters and air quality sensors.
Join us for a friendly and informal chat, where we’ll explore some of the data about Chorlton that we’ve been gathering and exploring, what it tells us (and, perhaps, what it doesn’t).
Each month we’ll explore some different information, present some recent data and then have plenty of time to chat and ask any questions.
This month will be joined by guest speaker (and former Chorlton resident) Blaise Kelly, who has been exploring some of the air-quality data we’ve been collecting and looking at what impact the weather has had.
These sessions are open to everyone – whether you’ve taken part in the Our Streets Chorlton project or not – whether you live locally or elsewhere, whether you’re a data expert or simply interested in finding out a bit more about where you live.
Our Streets Chorlton is a community-led project which aims to understand how to help decrease carbon emissions by enabling Chorlton people to reduce local and short car journeys.
Open Data Manchester is a not-for-profit that aims to create a fairer world built on responsible and intelligent data use – and helps people, organisations and communities make that happen.
This event will take place online via Zoom.
A summary of the discussion and any relevant data will be made available on the Our Streets Chorlton blog as soon as possible after the event.
Open Data Manchester is an inclusive community – everyone is welcome. Please take a minute to read our community code of conduct.
