Nasapp is an odour episode management system through citizen participation. It allows to have a summary of situation in real time from any portable device or computer. In this paper we studied the advantages of incorporating the automatic calculation of trajectories models of air in each record made by volunteer citizens.
The result is a substantial improvement in the visualization of complex problems, especially when there is diversity of odour sources. It was also verified the possibility of assigning causal percentages of odour episodes in each source, verifying meteorological and geographic influences, as well as validating the assignment of odour descriptors to known odour sources.
