Abstract: In this paper we describe the use of sensor grids within Discovery Net to construct a distributed system for urban air pollution monitoring and control. We present the background to urban air pollution monitoring and describe the high throughput sensors developed within this project to address the problem. We differentiate between the concepts of sensor networks and sensor grids and discuss the main challenges that arise when building sensor grids. We present a solution to address these challenges based on the integration of distributed sensors, grid technologies, data integration, data mining and GIS systems. We also present a case study for examining the effectiveness of visual and automated methods developed for the analysis of generated data sets.
