Short summary
We developed a method for directly measuring emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide in cities, using a mobile sensor network operated on vehicles (car, bikes) with open-source components. In two measurement campaigns, the network was tested in the City of Vancouver, BC, Canada. Carbon dioxide concentrations and emissions were mapped at block level (100 × 100 m). Our measured emissions agreed generally with a fine-scale independent emissions inventory.
