Re: Viewing previous counts

Hi Segev and thanks for your question. Not sure where you are living but if you are in Melbourne, Canberran, Sydney or Brisbane the easiest way to access past pollen count information is via the free app. Just go to the Apple or Google Play app stores and search for the pollen count app for your cit...

Re: Melbourne maps/locations

Thanks for the message. The central region is shown in grey because there are a number of pollen monitoring site in it and we're still trying to figure out how best to display the forecasts made by each of the sites. We're working on it though and hope to have something in place soon.

Re: What type of Grass do you use for your testing?

Hi Harrison, thanks for the question. Our numbers report the concentration of grass pollen in the air for the previous 24 hours to 3:30 pm when we take our reading. So a figure of 2 grass pollen grains per cubic metre means that, on average over the past 24 hours, a cubic metre of Melbourne's air wo...

Ho...

Re: How does the pollan count works?
