Is it possible to make community-based radiation maps?

In the website on “Database for Radioactive Substance Monitoring Data”, JAEA provides supporting tools for data visualization by users, such as creating a detailed radiation map and making a graph for plotting time-dependence of radiation.

  • Among the environmental monitoring results released on the website, about 60 kinds of data such as those of air dose rates and car-borne survey can be visualized.
  • Community-based maps and graphs can be created by combining with free software such as Google Earth.
