Safecast, global radiation sensor network

Safecast is a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements to empower people with data about their environments.

After the Fukushima disaster in March 2011,  it became clear that people wanted more data than what was available. Safecast is a global project working to empower people with data, primarily by mapping radiation levels and building a sensor network, enabling people to both contribute and freely use the data collected.

Now that it has Knight Frank’s funding, Safecast is expanding from Tokyo to Los Angeles, where it will begin measuring and streaming data on air quality.
