This project includes several Python and bash scripts designed to connect Geiger Muller counters to report their results to Soon the script will also feature local logging, graphing and alerting.

Just because the Cold War is "over" does not mean that there is no more threat of a radiological attack. In fact, the U.S. Homeland Security Council lists the "Detonation of a 10 Megaton Improvised Nuclear Device" as "Scenario #1" among the top 15 threats to American security. Or, if you do not believe that a nuclear bomb is likely, what about all the Chernobyl-style Soviet-era nuclear power stations still in service? The point is: let us work together as free people to jointly report and track radiation levels around the globe. Information is power--and more importantly, information can save lives.

This project is known to work on Raspberry Pi and various Linux distributions.

Both PyRadMon and are completely free, though donations are always appreciated.
