Louisville Kentucky, Provo Utah and two sites in metro Atlanta Georgia (Dekalb and Marietta) have been selected as pilot cities for pollen reporting. Allergists, researchers and cities are placing our automated pollen sensors around the country, and we expect our network to exceed the number of manual counting stations in the United States in 2019.
Want counts for your city?
First, some context:
There are about 85 NAB manual counting stations in the U.S.A. Even if there is a person providing manual pollen counts in your area, they’re likely to be providing averages for the day prior. Our automated samplers will quietly generate averages every hour based on samples taken a few minutes apart!
A location like an allergist’s office, home owner’s association, university or city air quality monitoring station is a great place to set up a pollen sensor. They’re the size of a boot box, mount to a pole and need internet and household power. Contact us with any ideas you may have to bring better pollen counts to your area!
We’re also working to roll out Pollen Wise™, our mobile app. It will provide easier access to the information from these automated pollen sensors so that you can know what is in your air, when and where like never before.
In the meantime, we’ll share daily charts for the pilot cities here. They’re based on real pollen and dust samples for that city. Check out the hourly trends!
