Submission + - Safecast Crowdsources Radiation Detection (safecast.org)

students writes: Safecast is seeking donations and volunteer citizen scientists to link a network of home built open source and government radiation monitors to a Google map. They claim to meet "our collective need for trusted information." But unlike the National Weather Service or Tsunami Warning Centers, they do not provide any expert interpretation. Could radiation data misunderstood by the press or public cause an unnecessary panic? The public needs context, not raw data, censorship, or geiger counter bans.
