There is a public sensor near me that is wildly throwing off my local AQI.
Google uses PurpleAir for its AQI data, so my android phone’s home screen frequently shows an alert for bad air quality because of this sensor. Clearly the sensor causing this alert is an outlier, maybe they live next to a diesel mechanic, I don’t know. It’s driving me nuts though. I would like to continue getting AQI alerts when the air quality is actually bad, so just disabling the widget is not a good option. However I’m sure this false reading has led many in my area to do just that.
I would be very surprised to find that PurpleAir allows user data on a public API with no ability for the community to remove bad actors. What options exist for removing this bad data from the map?
