Safecast is an international volunteer driven non-profit organization whose goal is to create useful, accessible, and granular environmental data for public information and research.
Safecast maintains the largest open dataset of background radiation measurements ever collected - over 50 million readings to date and growing daily.
All of the data collected is available through an open, free and public map of all submitted radiation data readings that can be accessed via browser or smartphone.
We strongly feel that environmental data should be open, easy to access, and easy to understand for everyone. Independent opinions about environmental data have to be available. In the age of the Internet of Things, that voice can directly come from citizens.
Safecast marked another first recently with the publication of a peer-reviewed paper in the prestigious Journal of Radiological Protection (JRP). The paper, titled “Safecast: successful citizen-science for radiation measurement and communication after Fukushima,” tells the story of our project, attempting to place it within the spectrum of citizen science in general and to describe our priorities, values, methodology, and results as clearly and readably as possible.
The Safecast bGeigie nano comes in kit format and requires soldering to assemble.
Mobile radiation sensor (alpha-beta-gamma) with display indicator in CPM and µSv/hr, number of satellites locked, height (m), distance traversed (km), total duration of measurement (h:m) and time stamp (dd:hh:mm:ss)
Geiger counter mode (no logging) with display indicator for µSv/hr dose-rate (Cs-137), max dose-rate, dosimeter, Bq/m2 display (Cs-137), time stamp and Alarm LED
Upload data using bluetooth and the free Safecast:Drive app. Compatible with Apple iOS, Google Play and|Amazon Apps devices.
