Improved mapping methodology using land cover and traffic data

ETC/ACM Technical Paper 2017/6 cover

Next to the improved NO2 concentration map, an methodologal improvement has been developed for population exposure estimates, aiming to better reflect the population exposed to traffic.

In this paper, the methodological improvements are applied for the NO2 annual average of monitoring year 2014, where ETC/ACM Technical Paper 2006/6 described and presented these results yet using the "conventional" methodology as also used for PM10 and ozone mapping.
