Sensing the Environment
Cork City Council has installed a number of environmental sensors in the city to help provide real time information about the city. Currently there are sensors monitoring real time water levels of the River Lee at Anglers Rest and the Lee Road and this data is available via data.corkcity.ie and is also shared through the corkdashboard.ie.
Recently the City Council installed a number of environment sensors on a main transport artery of the city as part of a pilot project with Johnson Controls. These sensors monitor Carbon Monoxide, Nitric Oxide (NO), Nitric Dioxide (NO2), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) [Calibrated] (High Accuracy), Particle Matter (PM1 / PM2.5 / PM10), Atmospheric Temperature, Humidity and Atmospheric pressure and Luminosity. The accuracy of these sensors are being validated at present and once the reliability of the data has been confirmed the data will be shared through the data dashboard and open data portal.
