The Citizen Sense Data Analysis Toolkits make it possible to analyze and download citizen-generated air-quality data points collected in northeastern Pennsylvania, an area that is heavily populated with unconventional natural-gas infrastructure. You can use the Airsift toolkits to explore Frackbox data, create plots and identify air pollution problems in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The Citizen Sense Airsift Frackbox Data Analysis Toolkit searches citizen-gathered datapoints, and at times can take up to 5 minutes to plot a graph. You can track the progress of the query at the top of the interface. Read the toolkit’s instructions here.

Because the Citizen Sense Airsift Frackbox Data Analysis Toolkit is a prototype, from time to time the page may crash or stall. The quickest way to restart the Airsift toolkit is to refresh the page. Please avoid repeatedly clicking the enter button, as this will cause the page to crash. You may occasionally experience a problem with your query if you attempt to switch between different plots. In this case, it is best to refresh the page, particularly after plotting a polar plot.

Occasionally, the Airsift toolkit will create a single graph of 2 sites where the data is an exact match. If this happens, it is best to re-plot the graph using the ‘multiple’ option, as the initial result may be an error.

We are currently working to fix these errors. If you notice any particular glitches, please get in touch.

The Frackbox Data Analysis Toolkit has been developed by Citizen Sense with citizen-generated air quality data collected in Pennsylvania as part of the “Pollution Sensing” project area. The Airsift toolkit is based on and adapted from the openair open-source software developed through King’s Environmental Research Group.
