Otax's concerns are also mine, since I have differential red-green color blindness (which sometimes results in "retinal rivalry", making the border between adjacent colors vibrate).

Rendering the map's continents in gray scale would help everyone.
I will think about second, gray map (if it's available in google api).
It would also be easier for everyone to discern colors (or shades of gray) with slightly larger station icons/circles.But it will cover other stations/detectors points. It will be really better?
I'm guessing that the 3 station colors are red, yellow and green. Since the normal background for a given station can vary considerably with local geology, construction materials (Chinese drywall!) and altitude, why not have the 3 colors (or shades) designate "near normal", "over 1.7x", and "over 3x normal" --instead of fixed ranges? (You could get fancy --calculating 2x and 3x the "standard deviation" for each station, but such factors serve Radiation Network well enough.)
We have had map made on this way, but we get loads opinions, that current method tells people more. Also, previous way if somewhere radiation level keeps higher for longer time it will never show red mark...
How about a legend for the station graphs? Am I supposed to read the red line or the more jagged blue line? Why are they different? What are all those little triangles about?
This is explained in this topic.
Is "Add a sensor" where I begin joining the network, or is that for adding 2nd and 3rd sensors to an existing station/account (as I now suspect)? I don't see much by way of explanations there --or anywhere, and the Q&A search utility has so far found nothing that I've asked for --even when using single, mono-sylabic words.
"Add sensor" works for every station (host) with connected detector and valid min. one task. It's a way how you can setup your sensor location. Is not possible connect more than one sensor to single host.
I think you/we need a section which "takes people by the hand", saying things like: "here's what equipment you need", "these are the brands and models of Geiger counters that we provide data cables and drivers for" (so I don't have to learn how to solder for the first time in my life), "these are our standards for placing and maintaining a Geiger counter", and "here are the steps --in order-- that you have to take in order to join and register your new station".
You are right. This is what we should do at the very first day.
Part of this information are on forum, but it need to be taken together and cleaned.
