RI-URBANS aims to develop and test innovative and complementary air quality monitoring approaches in different European pilot cities. This methodological work focusses on the potential of mobile and stationary sensor applications as complementary tools for traditional (low-density) monitoring networks. Complementary measurements can contribute to understand spatial variability of short-lived constituents of air pollution from a diversity of pollution sources. We identify different data users and use cases for mobile, stationary (or combined) sensor applications and their resulting implications regarding device specifications, monitoring strategy and data processing needs. By reflecting on past studies and projects, we summarize common methodological approaches and best practices to increase the spatial resolution of air quality data. Moreover, the role of citizen engagement is evaluated, both in generating more data and air quality impact (awareness raising).
