Air pollution is dispersion of the particulates, biological molecules, or other harmful materials into the Earth’s atmosphere, possibly causing diseases. Air pollutants can be either particles, liquids or gaseous. In the recent era, air pollution has become a major environmental issue because of the enhanced anthropogenic activities such as burning fossil fuels, natural gases, coal and oil, industrial process, advanced technologies and motor vehicles. The proposed project focused on air pollution study of North Coimbatore region (11° 0’ 16.4016’’ N and 76° 57’ 41.8752’’ E), Tamilnadu, India. The area comprises of industries, residential and commercial areas, where plenty of pollution occurs due to emissions from automobiles also. The main aim of the project is to develop models using GIS for the air pollutant concentration of Coimbatore region. In order to run the model, the concentration details of PM2.5 (Particulate mass) were collected. Prediction models have been evolved for the monitoring station to predict the concentration of pollutants (PM2.5) based on the different meteorological parameters and also vice versa. The project concludes that highly polluted places are Koundampalayam and Thudiyalur compared to all other monitoring stations.
