Despite almost half of Amsterdam's population biking to get to their destinations, air pollution is still a problem.

Google is bringing two of Project Air View's Street View cars to get a better idea of the city's air quality, according to a blog post Thursday from Karin Tuxen-Bettman, program manager at Google Earth Outreach.

The cars are equipped with air sensors to measure nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, ultra-fine dust and soot (extremely small particles that are hardly ever measured), according to Google.

Once the data in Amsterdam is analyzed, it'll be shared with the public, scientists and other organizations.

"This research can spread awareness about air pollution and help people take action," Tuxen-Bettman said.

"Our hope is that small changes like this can help improve overall quality of life."
