New Safecast Global Map

For the last few months our visualization team at MIT in Cambridge lead by Anthony DeVincenzi have been working hard on some new visualizations of our data, the first of those is live now. This has a number of improvements from our earlier maps in that you can link directly to any specific location and zoom level, see census data in Japan overlayed to get an idea how many people are in some of these areas, customize the appearance and get some pretty specific details about the measurements themselves. That’s in addition to showing off the more then 2,000,000 data points we’ve collected so far. We’re really excited about this new map, as well as what’s to come in the future. Hope this is helpful for you as well!
