ARII is a general air quality site geared primarily towards source attribution by the public, as well as the air quality research community, and is based on a highly accessible Google Maps/Earth platform. ARII integrates available regulatory and field campaign data for Houston. Among the distinguishing features of ARII is the ability to visualize back trajectories within a Google Earth framework, so that the user can trace the path of pollution to a particular monitoring station from nearby industrial facilities, especially around the time of reported emission events.
Air Exposure Research Online (AERO) sub-portal
AERO provides access to a subset of the air quality data available through ARII, specifically the datasets associated with the RIOPA and HEATS personal exposure field studies, and supplementary data required for more detailed analysis of those field study datasets. AERO employs a specialized GIS platform, specifically ESRI's ArcGIS Server 10.0, and is geared towards the professional air pollutant exposure and health effects researcher.
