The development of industry and the increase of transportation mode are directly proportional to the decrease in air quality. Some important pollutants have a negative impact on human health and the environment such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and ozone (O3). Distribution of NO2 and O3 concentrations from various sources of emissions in urban areas will provide basic information in the determination of policies, programs and regulations related to air pollution control. This study aims to map and analyze the concentration distribution of NO2 and O3 pollutants in Medan City. This research was conducted by a manual sampling of NO2 and O3 at 12 (twelve) points in Medan City. The sampling of NO2 and O3 concentrations is using impinger and then analyzed in a laboratory. The results showed that NO2 pollutant concentration in Medan City ranged from 21.33-306.19 |ig/m3. Meanwhile, for O3 concentrations ranged from 19.7-205.8 |ig/m3. Mapping of NO2 and O3 concentration using Geographic Information System obtained area that has the highest concentration of both NO2 and O3 is in Sub District of Medan Belawan. Furthermore, efforts to control air pollution can be done by applying clean technology to industry and encouraging the use of mass transportation.
