Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR ESTIMATING A LOCAL PARTICLE CONCENTRATION
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a device and method for estimating a local particle concentration indicating the local concentration of pollen and/or microorganisms and to a device and method for generating or refining a particle concentration map of a region. To increase the resolution and accuracy and to enable tracking and monitoring of exposure of a user a particle concentration map (40, 40') of a region (30) including the actual location (33) is used, which may be generated and refined by crowdsourcing.
