Abstract: In this paper we present the characteristics of sensors used to monitor the pollution levels in Mexico City, namely sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), ozone (O3), , and carbon monoxide (CO). A novel algorithm to predict contamination levels is presented: the Gamma classifier. Also, a new coding technique is introduced, allowing the conversion from a series of values taken from SIMAT databases into a set of patterns, which in turn are useful for the task of pollutant forecasting. Experimental results show a competitive performance by the Gamma classifier as a predictor, when compared to other methods.
