Short summary
This study presents strategies of method selection for 100 m scale PM2.5 mapping using a crowdsourced sampling campaign. Interestingly, PM2.5 concentrations in micro-environments varied significantly in intra-urban areas. These local PM2.5 variations can be effectively revealed by crowdsourcing sampling rather than national air quality monitoring sites. The selection of models for fine-scale PM2.5 mapping should be adjusted with the changing sampling and pollution circumstances.
