Air Pollution (PM10 and PM2.5) in Different Cities using Interactive Charts

June 2, 2015

(This article was first published on Adventures in Analytics and Visualization, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Gardiner Harris, who is a South Asia correspondent of the New York Times, shared a personal story of his son’s breathing troubles in New Delhi, India, in a recent dispatch titled Holding Your Breath in India. In this post, I use data from the World Health Organization’s Website to identify and map cities where the air quality is worse than the acceptable levels, measured by the annual mean concentration of particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5). A link to this was provided in the New York Times article. I use many packages from the R-Studio, Ramnath Vaidyanathan and Kenton Russel team, among others, in this process.
