This paper presents an approach and its corresponding application to monitor the air quality from a city, to collect air quality data and use it to provide information to the public. This study focuses on detecting the small particulate matter (PM 2.5) in the air and it considers two approaches in order to determine the air pollution levels: the users’ opinion and a technical sensor.
