A follow-up on Nannette’s post on December 19, regarding to Cory Doctorow’s report on hackers going to Japan(PBS interview with Mile O’Brien) and getting data of radiation using DIY technologies (self developed device with “Geiger” detectors, “iGeiger” with iPhones, and some of arduino).


This group of hackers are mapping radiation of Japan based on hundreds of small sensors that were plotted in many spots in the country. They firstly conceived the project within the range of Fukushima, then they realized that it is even more important to track the radiation levels at a bigger scale in order to understand the future development/movement of the radiation emancipation pattern. They are now trying to expand the data input map.


You can find the updated comprehensive and interactive radiation map under their recent post “New Safecast Global Map” that was updated last week. (http://blog.safecast.org/worldmap/)
