Abstract
Despite the negative impact bad air quality can have on individuals, there is little data available when it comes to personal exposure. We report on the data we collected from an "in the wild" study of air quality that we conducted with mobile personal sensor boards carried by commuters at UCSD developed by the CitiSense project. We look at how maps of exposure and social networking enabled our participants to learn about their own pollution exposure and also help their communities learn about their air quality. This poster presents data from our initial user study and also explores future directions based on the results.
