Abstract
Air pollution caused by fine dust is a big problem all over the world and fine dust has a fatal impact on human health. But there are too few fine dust measuring stations and the installation cost of fine dust measuring station is very expensive. In this paper, we propose Cloud-based air pollution information system using R. To measure fine dust, we have developed an inexpensive measuring device and studied the technique to accurately measure the concentration of fine dust at the user’s location. And we have developed the smartphone application to provide air pollution information. In our system, we provide collected data based analytical results through effective data modeling. Our system provides information on fine dust value and action tips through the air pollution information application. And it supports visualization on the map using the statistical program R. The user can check the fine dust statistics map and cope with fine dust accordingly.
