Started after the Fukushima earthquake in 2011, Safecast has the largest collection of radiation data ever available spanning every continent on the globe. Safecast believes that environmental data should be open, easy to access and easy to understand. They provide an open, free and public map of all submitted radiation data readings that can be access via browser or Safecast:drive apps.

The Safecast bGeigie Nano is a mobile, GPS enabled, logging, radiation sensor used by anyone that wants reliable radiation readings including scientists, first responders and citizens. It is designed for mounting on the outside of a car window but can be used on bicycles, trains, planes, and other modes of transportation. In logging mode, the Nano takes a measurement every 5 seconds and logs the time and location coordinates with excellent performance for a Geiger counter (Accuracy: +/- 10% typical, +/- 15% maximum ).

Thanks to the mobile Safecast:Drive app, Nano users submit their log files to the Safecast dataset and can view their readings on the open and free Safecast map from their phones.

This device is part of a global environmental sensor network enabling people to personally collect radiation and air quality readings, and freely use and share the data collected.

This device is available for purchase as a kit or fully assembled and ready to go.
