Meteorological conditions have a strong impact on the actual ambient air quality. Therefore, AquisNet has been designed right from the start to handle AQM and met data. Special provisions have been made to properly store, manage, analyse and visualise scalar data (e.g. temperature, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, etc.) and vector data (wind speed and direction). Time series analysis, correlations, standard statistics and user-defined equations can all be used to work on the met data. Wind rose plots are available. Wind and AQM data can be coupled to produce pollution roses. Export facilities allow for further processing with advanced mathematical tools, for instance the open source packages R® and openair®. Climatological studies are possible due to AquisNet’s inherent ability to store longterm time series of met data online.
KISTERS’ AquisNet (Air Quality Information System and Network) software covers all tasks of the process chain from data acquisition to validation, mass storage, graphical and numerical analysis and reporting.
AquisNet is available as a comprehensive software package for both the data centre (data centralization, management, aggregation, analysis, validation and reporting) and the individual monitoring stations (data acquisition, plausibility checks, calibration runs and functional tests, local storage). Alternatively, individual modules can be combined to produce adjusted solutions meeting specific needs.
Close contact with the user community and end-user feedback are sources of motivation and inspiration that drive the efforts of the team behind the product to make AquisNet progress and evolve year by year. Interaction with seasoned and new users alike is key to making AquisNet a state of the art productive working environment.
For more than 15 years, AquisNet end-users from both public institutions and private companies have cherished the unique consistency in dealing with KISTERS.
