The following data set has the information for the measurement of air quality at monitoring stations for the city of Bogota-Colombia ( The Bogotá Air Quality Monitoring Network - RMCAB ( has been operating since 1997. It is in charge of monitoring concentrations of criteria pollutants (particulate matter smaller than 10 and 2.5 microns in diameter - PM10 and PM2.5, ozone - O3, sulfur dioxide - SO2 and nitrogen dioxide - NO2 and carbon monoxide - CO), black carbon (or black carbon) and meteorological variables (precipitation, temperature, atmospheric pressure, solar radiation, wind speed and direction), through twenty (20) stations installed in different parts of the city. The monitoring stations are made up of monitors, analyzers, and automatic sensors that collect hourly data on the state of air quality in Bogotá. This information is stored and sent via the Internet to the central server of the Secretariat of the Environment. The information is then stored and sent via the Internet to the central server of the Secretariat of the Environment, where it is pre-filled and published in real time on the entity's web page. The network's monitors and analyzers operate under specific measurement methods established in Title 40 of the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations), which are approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). For each pollutant a specific reference method is defined, according to the equivalent technique for the operation of each monitor, also established in the appendices of Part 50 of Title 40 of the CFR. Please refer this data with the manuscript: A Empirical Relation between Pm10, Pm2.5 Pollution Concentration and Urban Tree Density in Urban Areas.
