BreezoMeter Air Quality Index, BAQI, was developed based on academic research, national AQIs, and other
The BAQI scale goes from 0 = "poor" to 100 = "excellent" with 5 color-coded categories of equal lengths,
as you can see below:
To create allergic severity score, we researched academic papers, looking for references to
sensitivity thresholds of allergic patients.
Then, we created the best thresholds per plant and per symptoms intensity (similar to our method when
constructing the BreezoMeter air quality score).
Our categories represent a measurable change in health effects caused by pollen.
