Concerned about nuclear radiation levels, due to fallout from damaged nuclear reactors, nuclear tests, or other events?
Radiation Map Tracker connects to our extensive network of constantly updating, real time, nuclear radiation detectors, all run by volunteers, not government agencies. This app lets you determine what levels of radiation are being reported at various locations around the world. You can scroll around the map and zoom in on readings. Readings are continuously updated every few minutes.
It displays the current ionizing radiation reading from these detectors on an easy to use world map, in uR/hr, one of the standard units of measurement for radiation. Typical background (naturally occurring) radiation values near sea level are in the 10 to 20 uR/hr range. Higher readings naturally occur at higher elevations due to cosmic rays from outer space.
Buy a copy of Radiation Map Tracker, and you'll never be in the dark about nuclear radiation levels again.
What's New in Version 1.1
New map display which allows better zooming and rotation.
Good mobile version of website
Those of you calling this a waste... You're idiots!!! Now pay attention: black cat systems makes hardware radiation detectors that interface w computers. This is not a government run service, it's strictly voluntary. When an owner of the hardware is testing the radiation level, it registers on a map for all to see. The more people testing, the more readings. This app is a mobile version of their map on the website, nothing more, nothing less and it's worth a buck for me to have access to the info. If there's no reading in your area do us all a favor and get some friends together, buy a monitor unit, connect it to your computer and let us all see what your readings are. Oh and I don't work for the company, I'm just a guy on the west coast concerned about the impending Fukushima disaster.
Decent app allows you to zoom and scroll around the map to see what various readings are. I would give this a 5 if able to switch from map to satellite view.
The ability to choose a radious around a certain location/current location to give push alerts if values raise more then a given amount would be most helpful. I want to thank the developers for reading the old reviews and listning to them making this app much better, thus my purchase of it!
Black Cat is Great!
Really nice radiation detector! And great that he made this app.
I think the app should have a help file explaining what the units are. It doesn't explain this anywhere. And ability to show trends over time. Also would love color coding for levels. Everything is green but high numbers could be yellow/red. One reading of 213 still showed as green.
