The Japan Nuclear Crowd Map

Remember Fukushima? They haven’t fixed it yet. Latest reports say they might be able to remove the molten fuel (the exact location of which is still unclear) by… 2020. And that’s just for starters in decommissioning terms. So maybe you should keep monitoring your local radiation levels. The Japan Nuclear Crowd Map, by researchers from the University of Southampton, shows you the average radiation in your area. The aim of it apparently is to “demonstrate the power of harvesting crowd-powered information to make up-to-date predictions accessible to users.” Just pop in your postcode and find out whether you need to dust off your boiler suit and goggles. http://jncm.ecs.soton.ac.uk
