A Software Application for Querying AQI Index Parameter Related to Air Pollution Using cURL in PHP
Abstract: Air pollution is one of the main problems for humanity. The quality of air in terms of pollution changes according to the intensity of air pollutants in atmosphere. Monitoring air quality is crucial for asthma sufferers and people affected by air pollution. In Turkey, air quality monitoring stations are established by Environment and Urban Ministry for each province. These stations have been hourly measuring air pollutant parameters according to its places. While some of stations only measure PM10 and SO2, some of them measure PM10, SO2, NO2 and etc. According to these parameters, air quality indexes (AQI) are instantly calculated for each station daily. These parameters have been publishing on the web page of ministry. A mobile based application on air pollution monitoring is not available yet. In this study, a new web and mobile based application instantly getting PM10, SO2 and AQI data from Adyaman air quality monitoring station is developed in PHP with cURL. And the developed application has been running in a web server located in Adiyaman University. The mobile application has been developed in Android operating system. Consequently, a mobile application has been developed for monitoring air quality parameters in this study. And the air pollutant parameters can be instantly monitored from mobile phones.
