During Open Data Day 2020, ISOC Serbia Chapter was proud to receive the ‘Open Data Citizen Initiative’ award together with Belgrade Open School and AllThingsTalk for our citizen science and air quality monitoring project “Invisible air for visible data” supported by UNDP. We have greatly enjoyed working with many concerned citizens on assembling and installing DESCON’s device ‘Klimerko’ across the country. 

Klimerko is both open source hardware and software, with all build instructions available on GitHub. The device measures PM2.5 and PM10 and PM1 air particles, along with humidity and temperature. Data that is collected from the network of devices is available in real-time on klimerko.org.

Open Data Day 2020 was held on March 7. It was organized in the scope of the open data and digital transformation projects implemented by UNDP in cooperation with the Office for IT and eGovernment of the Republic of Serbia, and supported by the UK Good Governance Fund.
