Only a few seats left for the Tokyo bGeigie Nano workshop on Sunday Sept 7th - RSVP - full is full! https://www.facebook.com/events/781312838556665/
Come and build your own bGeigie Nano mobile geiger counter and learn how to measure radiation and add to the Safecast map. The workshop starts at 10am at the Safecast office in Shibuya. No soldering skills are required. Costs are Y45,000 which pays for the materials to build your own device.

I see (I'm from Europe) For now the same map is online http://safecast.org/tilemap/ though requires internet connection and misses some of the layering. The iOS app (iPhones are not unpopular in Europe) offers the same capability. As all of this is work by volunteers, we hope someone will pick up the Windows or Linux version ;)
