Chernobyl in Australia
The Australian Map of Nuclear and Uranium Sites is a Google Map displaying the locations of more than 50 of Australia's nuclear sites including uranium mines, proposed reactor and dump sites, and British nuclear test sites.
As well as the map of nuclear reactor and test sites you can can also view an interactive Google Map that overlays the nuclear fallout zones caused by the 1986 Chernobyl accident applied to proposed nuclear power sites in Australia.
Users can select any of the proposed nuclear sites and see the Chernobyl fallout zones overlaid on a map of that location. Users can also adjust the wind direction to see how the fallout zones would be effected by different wind directions.
