Canberra is known to cause a lot of reactions to hay fever in Australia due to a variety of plants such as elm, larch and oak.

Dr. Simon Haberle and researchers from the Canberra Pollen Monitoring Program at the Australian National University have developed a pollen application and a website.

It will provide information on pollen types, collect data from users on how they use information on pollen to alleviate their hay fever and an improved seven-day pollen prognosis to prepare the usual sick.

Two additional versions of the Polen Count application have been developed, specifically for Australian Capital Territory and Victoria to help control pollen.

Users are encouraged to report their symptoms frequently so that developers can improve predictions and advice.

"The more you know about something like pollen and the impact it has on you, the better your management of that condition will be," Dr. Haberle told ABC Canberra.

The improvements that the website and the application will extend to advice on suitable places to live to help reduce hay fever.
