Safecast is a global project working to empower people with data that is accessible and easy to understand.
Shortly after the the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster on 3/11/2011, our team recognized a lack of consistent data regarding radiation levels. In response, Uncorked Studios launched RDTN.org – a site designed to collect and display aggregate radiation levels. The first version of the site launched within 72 hours. The site evolved into Safecast— a global organization that combines the efforts of a group of volunteers, as well as numerous technology and disaster experts.
