NUKEMAP, A Tool That Shows the Damage a Nuclear Detonation Would Do Anywhere in the World


NUKEMAP is a tool created by Alex Wellerstein built on Google Maps that shows users the damage a nuclear detonation would cause anywhere in the world. Users can pick from a list of major cities and historic detonation sites, or search Google Maps to see results for a specific location. The tool also lets users adjust the detonation for variables including kiloton yield, blast height, and fallout, or to select from a preset list of historic nuclear explosions.
