Crowdsourcing GIS (VGI) Tidbits - 6/23/11

A new research project based at University College London (UCL) is giving communities the resources and support to monitor local environmental conditions. The data you gather will help create a clearer picture of air quality at the very local level. This will inform us all and help encourage the Mayor and local councils take effective measures to improve our environment.

It's called Clean Air in London.
