Real-time Ecology air-monitoring

My microblogging continues. I want to present you a great achievement of the computer engineeres from Microsoft behind the project about a Washington MAP, showing Air Monitoring Sites. It is just an example. You can investigate the map by a 2D representation, but also on a 3D and see how the air quality changes in the time, on different areas and measured by different parameters. I can only congratulate the Washington State Department of Ecology.
They use nephelometry (NEPH), nucleophosmin (NPM1), Visibility, RTEMP monitoring methods. Try them HERE.
The same style of following the air quality of a certain region is possible to be examined on the London Air Quality Network website. And more, which you can use for your own city.

In Bulgaria, we don`t have such indicating maps online. But we have old-looking website of the Bulgarian Ministry of Environment and Water .
The "NEW", for example, there is:
Information materials relating to Regulation (EC) No 842/2006 on certain fluorinated greenhouse gases and implementing acts: Information for operators of equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gases (FGGs): Stationary refrigeration air-conditioning and heat pump equipment, which, however, is not bad at all and you have real RULES ONLINE. And useful to the green business.
THANK YOU, EC!
