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.

Foundational Data

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.

Premium Data

When publicly available data isn’t enough, we have a number of methods for obtaining high fidelity site-specific measurements:

  • Sensor Programs - ???
  • 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.

Hosted Data

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.
  • Flaring Data -

How do I view satellite data?

To view satellite data:

  1. Navigate to the Rosetta view of a site.
  2. Click alt_text to view available data sets.
  3. Choose any number of sets from our satellite sources:
    • TROPOMI
    • MODIS
    • GHGSat Pulse
  4. When you have chosen the datasets you want, exit the selection menu by clicking the alt_text or anywhere outside the window.
  5. Click on any colored marker in the Rosetta Timeline. (White spaces have no data for that period.)

How do I view public sensor data?

To view public sensor data:

  1. Navigate to the Rosetta view of a site.
  2. Click alt_text to view available data sets.
  3. Choose any number of sets from our sensor network sources:
    • PurpleAir
    • AirNow
    • OpenAQ
  4. When you have chosen the datasets you want, exit the selection menu by clicking the alt_text or anywhere outside the window. If a network is grayed out, there are not any sensors from that network near your site.
  5. Click on any colored marker in the Rosetta Timeline. (White spaces have no data for that period.) The sensors in range of your site will appear on the map with colors corresponding to their readings for the selected period.

  1. To view hourly measurements, click on the marker of any ground sensor you see on the map.

How do I view contextual data sources (wind, fire, population, etc.)?

To view contextual data:

  1. Navigate to the Rosetta view of a site.
  2. Click alt_text to view available data sets.
  3. Choose any number of sets from our contextual sources:
    • Weather
    • Climate
    • Fire
    • Population
  4. When you have chosen the datasets you want, exit the selection menu by clicking the alt_text or anywhere outside the window.
  5. Click on any colored marker in the Rosetta Timeline. (White spaces have no data for that period.) These datasets display similarly to Satellite Data, and have the same visibility/transparency functions.
