The Ministry of Environmental Protection unveiled a new Chinese website about a week or so ago. The English version appears unchanged for now. This news would probably not be blog-worthy except that the datacenter now seems a little buggy, causing two problems:
1) The Greenpeace Beijing API widget that I have on the top right of this blog isn’t fetching daily data anymore. (I’ve been in touch with the developers and I know they are working on it.)
2) The datacenter’s query function for past air quality data doesn’t quite work right; data queries return past data different from the date range entered. I hope and presume this will be fixed soon.
After the redesign, the presentation of API on the MEP homepage is now done in the datacenter analysis format, as opposed to the old list format (still used on the English site).
