Since 1995 the European Topic Center for Air and Climate Change (ETC/ACC) has been developing the AirBase information system. AirBase is the ETC/ACC central database for storing and retrieving European air-quality measurement results as well as detailed descriptions of monitoring networks, stations and measurement configurations. ETC/ACC has also developed the DEM (Data Exchange Module) as a tool for data exchange between the data supplying countries and AirBase and AirView as a tool to retrieve data from AirBase . The AirView web-application has been developed to give the general public interested in environmental issues a tool to interactively query the AirBase database and visualise air quality monitoring results as tables, graphs or maps. The application is available through the ETC/ACC web (http://etc-acc.eionet.eu.int/data bases/airview.html). AirView will have an important upgrade this year. AirView 3.0 will have more flexibility in selecting data graphically, more output possibilities, but also a link with the EEA Map Service Tool. It will be possible to select the data interactively via AirView and to make a corresponding GIS map on the EEA Map Server.
