Pollution in India : Real-time AQI Data

Air pollution has become a serious problem in recent years across the world. Effects of Air Pollution is devastating and its harmful effects are not just limited to Humans but also animals and plants as well. It also leads to global warming which is esentially increasing air and ocean temperatures around the world.

Indian cities have been topping the list of polluted cities. In order to solve the problem of air pollution the most important thing is to track air pollution on real-time basis first which alerts people to avoid outdoor activities during high air Pollution. This post explains how you can fetch real-time Air Quality Index (AQI) of Indian cities using Python and R code. It allows both Python and R programmers to pull pollution data.

You can download the dataset which contains static information about Indian states, cities and AQI stations. Variables stored in this dataset will be used further to fetch real-time data.

Step 1: Get API Key

First step is to log in to https://data.gov.in/ with Google/FB/Twitter/LinkedIn/Github profile. Once logged in, go to Dashboard > MyAccount. You will find API key there.

Incase you face any issue registering yourself and getting API key, you can use Sample API Key for experimentation purpose.See the Sample API key below. Sample API key has a limitation of 10 records it can fetch at a single run.
