Ever wanted to know the natural radiation where you live? Or compare the current radiation levels in Japan with those in your home town? Then this app is what you are looking for. "EcoData: Radiation" displays radioactivity levels of monitoring stations from all over the world in near real time. Select stations of interest from a map, browse station lists, explore the stations in your vicinity, or create and manage your own radiation monitoring station list. With over 2900 monitoring stations in 22 countries, this app beats all other available radiation apps in terms of "price per country" and content. And our country database is still growing...

✔ Near real time "live" radiation data for all countries (exceptions: data from EPA and the Hong Kong Observatory are only accessible via weblinks)
✔ Customized radiation graphs, with super color coding, so you can quickly identify current and previous radiation levels (InApp purchase)
✔ Radiation maps for all countries including basic statistics, such as maximum and minimum radioactivity levels (InApp purchase)
✔ Color coded map view annotations and station lists with latest radiation levels (available for most networks)
✔ Radiation monitoring station info and radiation levels directly on the map
✔ Monitoring stations sorted by distance from your current location
✔ A favorites list
✔ Information on radioactivity, learn about what is radiation, units of radiation, Gray (Gy), Sievert (Sv), how radiation is measured, types of radiation, exposure rates, sources of radiation, equivalent dose, understanding gamma dose rate, gamma count, beta counts, absorbed dose, background radiation and more.
The "live" data is displayed using an intuitive color-coding scheme that allows easy comparison of radiation levels both for neighboring stations as well as for stations separated by hundreds or thousands of miles.
