The most significant research and development activities concerning air quality assessment that is carried out by the Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health (IMORH) according to the “Program to protect and improve air quality in the City of Zagreb” is shown. For the first time, information on air quality in the City of Zagreb is experimentally presented showing air quality indexes, easily understandable to the citizens. The model that we used to display the air quality index is CAQI model, which is the most common in the European Union and facilitates the international comparison of near real time air quality. In this paper, a proposal for near real-time presentation of air quality information for the City of Zagreb, using sensor data and Web GIS technology is elaborated. Presently, data are available only from four automated monitoring stations, but activities are carried out towards automated stations within local city network.
