Air Quality Index API provides a real-time air quality health index on a scale of 1 to 10. The index is based on 3-hour averages of ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and fine particulate matter concentrations. Data is provided in ppb and ug/m3 respectively. This API can be used to monitor air quality in various locations and take necessary actions to protect public health.
About the API:
The Air Quality Index (AQI) API is a valuable tool for monitoring and understanding the quality of the air we breathe. This API provides real-time data on the official air quality health index (AQHI) based on key parameters such as ground-level ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). The AQHI is a scale that ranges from 1 to 10, with 1 representing the best air quality and 10 representing the worst.
The national AQHI is calculated based on three-hour average concentrations of the aforementioned pollutants. O3 and NO2 are measured in parts per billion (ppb) while PM2.5 is measured in micrograms per cubic meter (ug/m3). By providing data in these units, the API allows for easy comparison and understanding of the levels of these pollutants in the air.
This API can be used by individuals, organizations, and government agencies to monitor air quality in various locations and take necessary actions to protect public health. For example, individuals can use the API to check the air quality in their area before planning outdoor activities or making decisions about their health. Organizations and government agencies can use the API to monitor air quality and enforce regulations to reduce pollution and protect public health.
Overall, the Air Quality Index API is a valuable tool for understanding and improving the air we breathe. It provides real-time data on the official air quality health index, which can be used to make informed decisions and take actions to protect public health.
What this API receives and what your API provides (input/output)?
Pass the ground-level ozone (O3) in parts per billion (ppb), the nitrogen dioxide (NO2), in parts per billion (ppb), and the fine particulate matter (PM2.5), PM2.5 is * measured in micrograms per cubic meter (ug/m3). And receive the AQHI.
What are the most common uses cases of this API?
Environmental monitoring: The Air Quality Index API can be used by government agencies and organizations to monitor air quality in various locations and track changes over time. This information can be used to enforce regulations and take action to improve air quality.
Public health: The API can be used by healthcare providers to monitor air quality in their area and take necessary actions to protect the health of their patients. This could include rescheduling outdoor appointments or providing information on air quality to patients with respiratory conditions.
Air quality app: The API can be integrated into a mobile app that provides real-time air quality information to users. The app could provide alerts for high pollution levels and give recommendations for avoiding exposure to poor air quality.
Business intelligence: Companies in industries such as construction and transportation can use the API to monitor air quality in their area and make informed decisions about their operations. For example, a construction company could use the API to plan for days with better air quality to minimize dust and pollution.
Weather forecasting: The API can be integrated into weather forecasting services to provide more accurate and detailed information on air quality. This information could be used by meteorologists to make more accurate predictions and by the general public to plan their activities.
Academic research: The API can be used by academic researchers to study the relationship between air quality and public health. This information could be used to inform policy decisions and improve public health outcomes.
Are there any limitations to your plans?
Besides API call limitations per month, there are no other limitations.
Return the official air quality health index (1 to 10) bases on key parameters.The national AQHI is based on three-hour average concentrations of ground-level ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). O3 and NO2 are measured in parts per billion (ppb) while PM2.5 is measured in micrograms per cubic metre (ug/m3).

Prices are based on a recurring monthly subscription depending on the plan selected — plus overage fees applied when a developer exceeds a plan’s quota limits. In this example, you'll see the base plan amount as well as a quota limit of API requests. Be sure to notice the overage fee because you will be charged for each additional request.
Zyla API Hub works on a recurring monthly subscription system. Your billing cycle will start the day you purchase one of the paid plans, and it will renew the same day of the next month. So be aware to cancel your subscription beforehand if you want to avoid future charges.
Just go to the pricing page of that API and select the plan that you want to upgrade to. You will only be charged the full amount of that plan, but you will be enjoying the features that the plan offers right away.
