Environmental monitoring is an integral part of urban sensing, particularly in spatially heterogeneous surroundings of mega-metropolitan regions. The recent data-driven trend in urban policies has mandated governments to search for and utilize better information gathering and handling techniques in order to measure the impacts of development, change and daily activities on public health. Air quality monitoring is a representative example, where a dense sensory network enables retrieval of real-time pollutant concentration. However, locational configuration of monitoring stations is crucial. This paper reviews methods for station configuration evaluation. The recently installed stationary air-quality urban sensory network in Moscow, Russia is examined with respect to sampling issues.
