Data Stories: Pennsylvania

Citizen Sense worked with local residents in northeastern Pennsylvania to develop a pollution monitoring kit. In total, 30 monitors and kits were distributed to residents. The monitoring period ran for over 7 months, until June 2015. These 5 data stories we have developed demonstrate the different patterns that have emerged from the data.
