Air Quality Index for Health Map

This map updates every two to five minutes with the most up-to-date calculated Air Quality Index for Health (AQIH) for each station. 

If a station is blue it means that it is a non-automated station and data will only be available following laboratory analysis.

If a station displays no colour (grey) there may be an instrument or communication issue associated with it or it may be undergoing planned maintenance/upgrade.

As well as viewing the AQIH for the station closest to your home you can select to view the AQIH for your region on the map. The tab to turn on the region layer is on the top right hand side of the map.

A list of all the monitoring stations is available here

Detailed information on the AQIH is available at Air Quality Index for Health.
