    sg-hazometer

    The Singapore Hazometer is a simple npm module allowing for easy retrieval of pollutant data from data.gov.sg, which is in turn sourced from NEA.

    `node demo.js`
    

    Demo

    const hazometer = require("sg-hazometer")
    const apiKey = "xxx" // get one here https://developers.data.gov.sg
    	
    hazometer.getInfo({apiKey}, function(err, data){
    	console.log(data)
    })
    

    You'll get something like the following:

    FAQ

    What do all these terms mean?

    summary: human-readable assessment of current air quality (see this)

    dailyPM10: 24h readings for particulate matter 10 micrometers or less in diameter

    dailyPM25: ditto, but for particulate matter 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter

    8hCO: 8h readings for Carbon Monoxide levels

    2hNO2: 2h readings for Nitrogen Dioxide levels

    dailySO2: 24h readings for Sulfur Dioxide levels

    8hO3: 8h readings for Ozone levels

    3hPSI: 3h readings for the NEA-released Particulate Matter Index (PSI)

    dailyPSI: ditto but every 24h

    location: coordinates of the points at which the readings are taken at

    Why don't the dateTime or date parameters seem to do anything?

    The data.gov.sg API seems to be faulty.

    Why is data on pollution sub-indexes not included?

    The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) is calculated from sub-indexes using a formula detailed here. This module retrieves the raw data that is used to calculate the index, that is then used to calculate the overall PSI. Unless you plan to check NEA's mathematics, it's unlikely the sub-index itself will be of any interest.
