The project with Reuters Graphics attempts to address this air quality crisis through visual narratives that can help inform the audience about the critical nature of the situation and create awareness or at least start conversations in the right direction that can drive active measures and policy changes. It begins with identifying the possible causes behind the recurring degradation in air quality every year and goes on to establish them with visual evidence of the air pollution, using data collected from air pollution monitors from the city as well as satellite imagery from NASA.
