What is a widget? 

A widget, also called a snippet or gadget, is an online application that displays featured content directly on your web page. Once installed, widgets are automatically updated to display new information as soon as it is published so your website visitors can get the most current information without having to visit other web sites.

Who is this widget for?

The Air Quality Health Index is primarily designed for local governments and municipal authorities who communicate AQHI data to their constituents.

The AQHI latest conditions and forecast is issued every hour. Learn more about the Air Quality Health Index before using this widget.
