New iPhone App: GeigerMap Provides Radiation Readings from 7,500 Cities
      #40522 - 04/25/11 08:59 AM

Power App today released GeigerMap for iOS, a new iPhone app that provides updated radiation readings from more than 7,500 official and private measuring stations worldwide. GeigerMap consists of a searchable, global Google Map that displays crowd-sourced Geiger counter readings. Each colored pushpin can be tapped to read the name of the town or city and its current radiation level. Here is more info:



The primary value of GeigerMap is to assure ordinary people that worldwide radiation levels are not dangerously high, even following accidents at electrical power plants that rely on fissionable, nuclear material for boiling water that will power turbine generators. Although radiation levels may be lethal on-site, locations more than 25 miles away generally remain unaffected. Because the app employs such a large sampling, it is easily possible to dismiss anomalous readings that may be reported in isolated locales.

Feature Highlights:

* Monitor global radiation levels on your iOS device
* Geiger counter readings are updated several times each day
* Obtain the exact numerical reading for towns and cities worldwide
* Error minimization by comparing monitoring stations in the near vicinity
* At 200 CPM the risk of cancer starts to increase
* Direct links to many more free and paid apps from Power APP GmbH

GeigerMap sells for $4.99 on the iTunes App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/app/Geigermap/id430227761?mt=8
