An application that allows people to compare air quality index, air pollutant levels, and energy consumption for various cities in the United States has received the most votes to date in a challenge by the Environmental Protection Agency to build applications out of available agency data.

CGSearch is a mobile app that allows people to compare these factors in U.S. cities with Atlanta, providing them with graphical data for cities they may want to travel to or move to, according to the website for the Apps for the Environment challenge.

The app uses data from sensors the government has placed in various cities that records this type of data, building models that would help generate/predict data for the future, according to the site.
