Two datasets of smartphone readings of battery temperature, pressure and light intensity in the Amsterdam metropolitan area, the Netherlands, from June 2017. Included is a readme.txt file with details on the dataset. The datasets also include metadata, e.g. regarding the accuracy of the readings or the status of the phone. They also contain humidity and temperature observations, but these have not been investigated yet. The data are meant to provide city-average estimates. Hence, location information is not needed and has been removed in order to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation
