Data Drives Community This Weekend

This weekend, we’re taking #DataDrives to the streets of Houston with two community events. We hope to see you there:

Google Street View Car at Sunday Streets

One Breath partner Environmental Defense Fund teamed with Google to add mobile air sensors to Google’s fleet of Street View cars in the Houston region. Come to Sunday Streets this weekend and join the One Breath Partnership team to see the sensors firsthand – and learn more about how the mobile data collected is providing new insights and driving solutions for clean air in the Houston region.

WHERE: 1301 McKinney (northwest corner of McKinney and Austin)

WHEN: Sunday, December 2, from 4pm - 8pm

WHAT: Mobile Air Monitoring Sensors on a Google Street View car and the City of Houston's Mobile Lab

DataDrives @TXRXLabs

Advocates for clean air and data scientists will get together at TX/RX Labs to be a part of a data jam, working with local, state, and federal data into an API created by January Advisors.

Whether you're participating or not, all are invited to enjoy food, drinks and conversation, observe the data jammers, hear from groups like Air Alliance Houston, Environmental Defense Fund, and TX/RX Labs on data projects, air monitoring, and building DIY sensors. And on display, we'll also have a Google Street View car equipped with mobile air monitoring sensors.
