Short summary
This paper presents a low-technical method of estimating particulate air pollution in small cities, using Cabanatuan City, Philippines, as the study site, intended for use by stakeholders requiring minimal training in geospatial methods and GIS, for expediting air pollution emission inventories. This method utilizes local emission data and land cover derived from Google Earth satellite images. Results in the study site suggest high emissions from vehicular sources and rice straw burning.
