Air pollution is estimated to kill seven million people every year, worldwide, largely as a result of increased mortality from stroke, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer and acute respiratory infections. The World Health Organization data shows that 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants. PlanETAIR is an Augmented Reality (AR) experiment conceived to deliver education and technical information about air pollution worldwide. Data from the WHO Global Ambient Air Quality Database 24 will be used two produce a 360° globe with data on air quality, using coding provided by WebGlobe (Chrome Experiments with Google). Although it is not intended to be a completely immersive experience itself (in the sense of causing a real experience of polluted atmospheres. PlanETAIR gives a visual comparison of what is a heavy polluted city and what is a slight polluted city, and real-time information on air quality and health issues on each selected place to which information is available. It is conceived to be used with virtual reality goggles, computers, tablets and cellphones.
