The aim of this chapter is to describe the ways that pollen information is being presented and disseminated to the general public, in various European countries and elsewhere, with the aid of information and communication systems and methods. For this purpose, the chapter firstly addresses the legal framework concerning the dissemination of environmental information and especially information concerning the quality of the atmospheric environment. In the next section, the production of pollen related information via monitoring systems and with the aid of appropriate models is addressed. Then, the chapter presents and analyses pollen information dissemination, including internet technologies as well as participatory sensing. Furthermore, on-line pollen information systems are investigated, and pollen information presentation as well as communication means are analysed. On the basis of the aforementioned investigations, the chapter then addresses the area of electronic information systems and services for quality of life. Such services are suggested as appropriate for disseminating environmental quality information related to pollen levels. Lastly, conclusions are drawn concerning information services that would include pollen related data and knowledge.
