In an effort to track Delhi’s escalating pollution levels, India Spend, a data journalism news site has built an interactive map tracking real-time pollution data across Delhi and Mumbai.

To use the map, click on the yellow bubble to take a closer look at the city’s burgeoning Air Quality Index (AQI). Monitors have been placed across different parts of the capital. Most locations show a reading above 250 AQI, five times higher than the permissible amount.

Click on each reading to get a more detailed view of the location’s readings.
