Issue with the Air Indicator Downloading Service - days with few or no data

Hello EEA team,

We usually use the web service at the URL
with our own token, and we have noticed that some days the web service gives only an empty file as if they were no new measurement over the world for those days.

For example, we have no data from 2015-08-07 until now (2015-08-11).
We also had no data from 2015-07-16 to 2015-07-18.
Some other days seems to have only few data, like on 2015-07-15.

Why is there some days with no data, some days with few data ?
If it's a technical problem, will it be fixed soon ?

Hello, It seems you are using the old download service (ozone web) which is only partly supported and only includes data for countries which have not already shifted to deliver up-to-date air quality data via e-Reporting. You should move to the new service where data is coming in via e-Reporting for air quality: http://discomap.eea.europa.eu/[…]/AirQualityUTDExport.htm
It is the same token for both services. The download page includes both a short guideline and a link to the status page which shows which countries are delivering.The new service can deliver in both the old CSV data format but also in XML format. Be aware that France is still only delivering via the old ozone web, but they are working on providing up-to-date data via e-Reporting.
Hopefully this answers your question. Kind regards.
