With Ambee Maps, individuals and businesses alike gain invaluable insights into surroundings down to the neighborhood level at a global scale. This empowers proactive decision-making while fostering a healthier, safer world.

Datasets available to track

Ambee Maps allows users to track air quality, pollen, and wildfire data in interactive visuals. Here is a detailed breakdown of the information available on the platform.

Air quality

Ambee’s air quality map visually depicts air quality data, including parameters such as PM10, PM2.5, CO, NO2, SO2, O3, and more, with street-level granularity. It also provides Air Quality Index (AQI) values so users can understand the air quality around them easily.

The AQI is determined by data gathered from monitored air quality stations and is split into categories such as Good, Moderate, Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups, Unhealthy, and Hazardous. Ambee uses US EPA-compliant risk levels for AQI.

Ambee's pollen map offers detailed insights into the types of pollen present—tree, weed, and grass, their concentration levels, and corresponding recommendations. They are further broken down into sub-species level information.

These features facilitate easy assessment of allergen severity. Ambee's pollen maps adhere to the standards set by the National Allergy Bureau (NAB). They are meticulously designed to comprehensively overview pollen types and sub-species at a zip-code level.

Ambee provides users with up-to-the-minute information on wildfires. The information includes the location, intensity, size, fire confidence level (low, nominal, high), source/fire type (reported or detected by satellite), and detection date. Other parameters also include Fire Radiant Power (FRP) and Fire-Weather Index (FWI) around the selected locations.

Essential features of Ambee Maps

Access any location of your choice

The user can select the location of their choice for any point on earth at the top left side of the screen. This allows the user to access various features and detailed information on the location of their choice.

Get data in real-time

The user can switch between datasets, mainly air quality, tree pollen, grass pollen, and weed pollen, from the dropdown box at the top center of the platform.

Once the location has been entered, on the left side of the screen, the user will find a further breakdown of the dataset they have selected.
