Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of data does AirLogic have?
The Data Catalog has comprehensive information on each individual data source available in AirLogic. Here is an overview of each data type and how to access them in AirLogic.
A number of datasets are available immediately upon the creation of a site. These sources can jumpstart analysis with years of trends and daily updates.
- Satellite Data - Immediately available upon the creation of a site, satellite data is the foundation of analysis in AirLogic. View global atmospheric data updated weekly, daily, and sometimes even hourly. To learn more about specific satellites, view our Satellites page in the Data Catalog.
- Public Sensor Data - Especially near urban areas, sites will often be close to publicly accessible ground sensor networks such as AirNow and PurpleAir. These sensors come from citizen science, educational facilities, and more. To learn more about specific sensor networks, view our Sensor Network page in the Data Catalog.
- Contextual Data - In addition to data directly related to emissions and atmosphere, we also offer auxiliary information that may be useful in understanding the causes and impact of emissions. To learn more about specific contextual data sources, view our Contextual Data page in the Data Catalog.
When publicly available data isn’t enough, we have a number of methods for obtaining high fidelity site-specific measurements:
- Sensor Programs - Need help choosing the most cost-effective sensors? We offer close guidance for choosing the best solution for your sites.
- Partner Services - We are partnered with services that can provide more detailed data than what is publicly available. For example, GHGSat can gather readings over a site that are much higher resolution than TROPOMI.
AirLogic is capable of managing many forms of data your company might already collect or have access to. Each new kind of data will likely require our team some time to set up properly, but after that it becomes as simple as uploading the data as it is created. Sometimes an API allows us to automatically stream the data into AirLogic. See API Integration for more information. Examples of data we could handle:
- Internal Sensors - If your company performs fenceline monitoring, SEM (Surface Emissions Monitoring), or even drone sensing, that data can be loaded into AirLogic. There, it can be seamlessly viewed alongside other datasets for rapid and powerful analysis.
- Production Data - Want to compare your production schedule to what’s going on in the atmosphere? We can upload production data to be viewed right alongside the many other sources in Rosetta.
