What is Sensor.Community?

Sensor.Community is a contributors driven global sensor network that creates Open Environmental Data.

Our mission is to inspire and enrich people’s lives by offering a platform for the collective curiosity in nature that is genuine, joyful and positive.

The Sensor.Community platform receives values each 2 1/2 minutes from more than 12.000 sensors in over 70 countries (July 2020).

These sensors are measuring environmental data as Air-Quality, temperature, relative humidity and pressure. You can see the live values on the live map Maps.Sensor.Community.

Everything ever measured is available as Open Environmental Data. You can download all historical Open Data at Archive.Sensor.Community

To participate you can join a local group which you can discover on the community layer of the map where live values are displayed.

We invite you to become part of the community. Build a sensor, collect Open Data, share it in a continuous stream with the network and join forces in local Sensor.Community groups to analyse it. Find like-minded people which care about the environment and the implications on our health. Stay informed and exchange with your neighbours.

Once the sensor tube is connected to the network its measured values are available live on the map at Sensor.Community. These values are refreshed every few minutes and enable all citizens to see how the situation is around them.

The available historical Open Data of all ever measured values enable other projects to serve citizens with other specific services and functionality.

Sensor.Community is here to serve citizens on a global scale with environmental Open Data. Our focus is to add further sensor methods, collaborate with institutions as RIVM on data standards and better integrations in their daily work. One great example here is the integration of the Open Data from Sensor.Community into the Dataportal of RIVM.
