Atmospheric pollutants, such as gases and particu-late matters (PM) pose a threat to human health. In particular, there has been a strong focus on particulate matter as it is a common pollutant to cause population health hazards, especially respiratory illness. Monitoring of this pollutant is currently attained at low spatial resolutions due to the cost of accurate sensing devices. Even though these devices are highly accurate, given the distance they are placed apart from each other, the relevance of their measurements to an unmeasured spatial location in between sensors will be very low, which causes large estimation errors. In this paper, we present a solution by creating easy-to-implemen..
