PM 10 emissions from road transport in Paris. New online maps published by the European Commission and the European Environment Agency, in close cooperation with the Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) of the Joint Research Centre, allow citizens to pinpoint the main diffuse sources of air pollution, such as transport and aviation. The new set of 32 maps allows Europeans to see on a scale of 5 km by 5 km where pollutants are released.
