Raster-based air pollution concentration maps for the Netherlands. The dataset consists of air pollution concentration maps for six pollutants (NO2, NO2background, NOx, PM2.5, PM2.5absorbance, PM10), covering the land mass of the Netherlands at 5m spatial resolution. The maps were calculated using the Land Use Regression models from the European Study of Cohorts for Air Pollution Effects (ESCAPE) project. Several Python scripts used for data preparation and the model scripts creating the datasets are included. Use the free 7-Zip to uncompress. Uncompressed size: 78 GiB.
