From October 2018 until the end of 2019 a Google Street View-car with advanced measuring equipment will drive through the city of Copenhagen. The project will give new the citizens new insights to air pollution and provide the politicians with new knowledge to a problem that are causing hundreds of deaths each year so that they can make better decisions for clean air.

The Google Street View-car will be showcased an hour at the City Hall Square from 14.30-15.30 before it will be send out into the traffic to start the measurements.
