  Project Data
Funds: $150,000
Staff Responsibility: Matthew J. Griffin

BACKGROUND


Air quality is a public health issue for communities near airports, and this topic is broadly applicable to many airports in urban areas. ACRP WebResource 4: Airport Air Quality Resource Library was published in June 2018, along with accompanying ACRP Research Report 185: Airport Air Quality Management 101. ACRP WebResource 4 is intended to be a “one-stop shop” for airport practitioners to find information and tools related to air quality. An update is needed to add recent ACRP and non-ACRP air quality-related publications and address the website’s dated functionality, repair broken links, and enhance the layout usability.

 

OBJECTIVE

 

The objective of this research is to update ACRP WebResource 4 for airport air quality subject matter experts and non-subject matter experts alike by:

 

1. Update ACRP WebResource 4 content by performing the following tasks:

  • Identifying and updating dead links; and
  • Incorporating new resources and removing and archiving out-of-date resources, at a minimum, based on the current breadth of technical documents currently hosted. 

2. Enhance the user experience and functionality applicable to a wide range of users including:

  • Streamlining, simplifying, and refining the presentation and categorization of resources;
  • Evaluating options to track site traffic and feedback from site users;
  • Configuring the site to allow its use on all possible devices including mobile phones and tablets;
  • Evaluating and recommending search engine optimization; and
  • Updating the WebResource User Guide.

3. Validate the research effort via stakeholder outreach.
