This paper presents an open platform, which collects multimodal environmental data related to air quality from several sources including official open sources, social media and citizens. Collecting and fusing different sources of air quality data into a unified air quality indicator is a highly challenging problem, leveraging recent advances in image analysis, open hardware, machine learning and data fusion and is expected to result in increased geographical coverage and temporal granularity of air quality data.
