Plume Air Report is a weather forecasting app for urban air pollution. The free app, developed by Plume Labs, tells you if it’s safe to run, bike, go out with your children or eat outside.
To do this, the company relies on thousands of pollution monitoring stations. The company aggregates the usual suspects, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3) and particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10), and then hides all the complexity behind a simple index. The app covers over 150 cities around the world. Check it out!

ESRI is hosting a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on building your own Geo Apps. They state:
You don’t have to be a software developer to build valuable geo-enabled apps that make your communities smarter and businesses more successful. This course will show you how to combine location and narrative in one application to better communicate and broadcast your story, create custom web applications that solve problems in your community, and build powerful native applications for iOS and Android devices without touching a piece of code. If you are a developer, you’ll be interested in Esri’s APIs, SDKs, and the buzzing GeoDev community.
The course includes:
You will be exposed to application templates and test drive Web AppBuilder and AppStudio. The free online course runs from February 3 to March 3, 2016. Check it out and sign up!
