We have added reactor icons (with details) to our radioactivity map.

At least in Germany many nukes have been shut down after the man-made mass-contamination from Fukushima, and they still are registered as "Operating" in the map. Is there a way to change that for us? Or do we just have to make you aware of it, and you will change it?

Message 1247 - Posted: 27 Jul 2012 | 14:24:41 UTC - in response to Message 1246.

If you send me details about which one are switched off (current status?), I will update it on database.
Is any sense to build a special form for updating? Is there that many changes possible?

8 were shut down in March 2011, and got no new permission with the new nuclear law passed in August 2011, so de jure they were shut down in August, but de facto in March.
The remaining 9 are to phase out until at last 2022.
No new nuclear plants will be build.
Here's the list of those who were shut down since around reunification:

Name Online-Date Offline-Date Brunsbüttel 09.02.77 06.08.11 Isar/Ohu 1 21.03.79 06.08.11 Philippsburg 1 26.03.80 06.08.11 Krümmel 28.03.84 06.08.11 Unterweser 06.09.79 06.08.11 Biblis B 31.01.77 06.08.11 Neckarwesth. 1 01.12.76 06.08.11 Biblis A 26.02.75 06.08.11 Obrigheim 01.04.69 11.05.05 Stade 19.05.72 14.11.03 Würgassen 11.11.75 26.08.94 Karlsruhe II 03.03.79 23.08.91 Greifswald 1 12.07.74 18.12.90 Greifswald 4 01.11.79 02.06.90 Rheinsberg 11.10.66 01.06.90 Greifswald 3 01.05.78 28.02.90 Greifswald 2 16.04.75 14.02.90 Greifswald 5 01.11.89 24.11.89 Jülich 19.05.69 31.12.88 Mülheim-Kärl. 01.10.87 09.09.88

Thanks for info, I have updated database.

My list has only operational reactors and was not up to date, so I add off-line reactors from your list as well (or power plants - depending of info found in Internet).
Also, I think that maybe I need separate icon for off-line reactors, to make map clear?

That'll be a good idea, make the operating ones bright yellow, and the others more like colour of pee or such, dunno what#s the proper name for that in english.

1. There are some old closed reactors on the map - but Chernobyl is missing !?

2. Fukushima Daiichi is listed as operating ? - Isnt it destroyed and so not operating ?

Very good idea! Perhaps the nuclear symbol should be little bigger? Its not so good visible like the green spot on a map.

Capacity (Netto): 217 MW
Status: Operating
Start Year: 1968

Guessing the list doesn't include research reactors?

http://www.mne.ksu.edu/research/centers/reactor

I walk right past it almost every time I go home from work....shortcut between buildings.

Hopefully I'll still have a computer that I can run radioactiveathome at work, when the detector finally shows up....

I want to cut in this research reactor question too. We have one with 250kW in Vienna and my second sensor will be mounted max. 500m Airline from it on sunday ;)

So, do you add research Reactors onto the Map?

If research reactors is of interest for this project, there exists 2 of them in Norway.
Both is driven by "Institute for Energy Technology" (IFE).

The most known is the "Halden project" (started 1959) where 19 different countrys are involved in research for safety in different areas regarding nuclar plants.

The Haldenreactor is a 25 MW heavywatermoderated- and cooled boiling reactor.
The reactor is in operation about 50% of the year, the rest of the year is preperations for science tests. (the reactor produces only steam, no power).

The other one is the "JEEP-II" reactor on Kjeller that was started in 1955.
This project is connected to the Halden project, and primary produces isoptopes for use in medicin and research.

Kjeller is located 22,6 km northeast of Oslo, just north outside of Lillestrøm.
Halden is located 117 km south east of Oslo, at the border to Sweeden, close to Strömstad in Sweeden.

I will add mentioned reactors to database tomorrow.

Edit:

I did try to find location of the reactors over Internet but unsuccessfully, so I need your help...
What I need is name of reactor, lattitude and lingitude, capacity, status (operational/suspended/switched off), owner name. Without that data I can't add it to database :/

I too need to know as I have received an email to show my location, but I can not find any data??? I go into my set up and it show Map 0?????

Hello,

Your sensor connected to host 9007 has no location set.
Please go to your host page at http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/show_host_detail.php?hostid=9007
and add a marker on the map

1st go to http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/show_host_detail.php?hostid=9007
2nd scroll down - there should be a Google Map
3rd move the red tag to your location
4th press the add sensor

should look like that (may be not in German like mine...)


5th you sensor should be on map after ... 2h?!

Your sensor doesn't "co-operate".
You have no any one task returned with valid results - take a look here:

Thank you for responding, I figured that maybe the problem, I am running a GMC-300E, the posts on this subject are not that clear. I will shut down until they come up with a working model.

could you include nuclear explosions and disasters on the world map as well? maybe a skull and crossbones icon or something... imagine how many in nevada and south pacific.

could there be a database to scrape? this guy apparently has the data:

or this:

I assume it would almost have to be a "layer", since it make the view busy in some areas.
Someone had made a layer for google earth in a similar way, elsewhere on the net.
Uranium mines would also be another potential "poi".

Doesn't coal power plant leak more radiation than nuclear power plant? Normal operating nuclear PP should be safer than coal, why not add those to map too?

Greetings:

I found some updates for the Canadian reactor data on the map:

Bruce (next to the Great Lakes) has the following 2 additional reactors that have returned to service: Bruce-1 and Bruce-2. On the map they go next to 3 and 4.

Name: Bruce-1
Capacity (Net): 772 MW
Status: Operating
Start Year: 1977 [returned to operation 2012]
Owner: Ontario Power Generation (OPG)

Name: Bruce-2
Capacity (Net): 772 MW
Status: Operating
Start Year: 1997 [returned to operation 2012]
Owner: Ontario Power Generation (OPG)

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Nuclear_Generating_Station


As an overall comment on the reactor map, I found it at first unbelievable that the reactor capacities are so low, until I realized that the icon represents only one of the reactors at each site, not the total capacity. It is only by zooming in very close that one can see the other reactors at the site and get a sense of the total capacity. Is it possible to show the total capacity when the map has room for only one icon? Or add an icon for the total that is on top until you zoom in close?
