To the OKFN community,
My name is Davi and I’m participating on the Brazilian local open data survey for 2017.
As I was reviewing one of the surveys I found something that I think is worth deeper thoughts.
In the picture we can see the air monitoring stations for the capital city of Brazil, Brasilia.
Two of the monitoring stations are in a scarcely populated area, the other two are very close to each other, and most of the city seems to be “unmonitored” (brown areas are more dense).
I know that the ODI is not intended to measure the instrumental quality of data collection, but the provision of data. However, in this case I feel that I can barely say that the monitoring can give me a real perception of the air quality in the city, since so much of it seems to be unmonitored.
The ODI specifically asks for data on the monitoring station, so on this particular question on the ODI it gets a positive check, but I was wondering if it should also ask about if monitoring covers the entire city, most of the city or something on these lines.
What do you think?!
