Real time radioactivity in Madrid
Interactive charts allow you to filter data, select dates, zoom, and more. They are an extraordinary tool for analyzing the data generated by the Geiger counter, with the average of the measurements taken, each minute, during the last 24 hours.

Keep in mindRapid increases in measurements are not a sign of danger, per se, and should not be a cause for alarm.
Historical Beta and Gamma Radiation in Madrid
Why measure Beta and Gamma radiation?
There are few public sources of radiation data, so it seems interesting to have this information, given how dangerous it can be for health and the "obscurantism" that usually exists on this information. Can you trust the official sources?
Recently (April 2020) a forest fire in the area near Chernobyl has set off alarms by multiplying the usual radiation levels in the area by 16, dispersing a radioactive cloud over much of Europe (it seems that nothing serious, fortunately) .
It particularly reassures me to see a graph like this one, with data on radioactivity in Madrid, collected by my own means at that time, which I know has not been manipulated.
In it, it can be seen how the radiation data during the fire, and in the following days, were at the same levels of the fire prices days:
