European Indoor Radon Map reports 

European Indoor Radon Map

The European Indoor Radon Map reports the arithmetic means (AM) over 10 km x 10 km grid cells of annual indoor radon concentration in ground-floor rooms of dwellings.

This grid has been defined by the JRC and uses a GISCO-Lambert azimuthal equal area projection. The input data are provided by national competent authorities (see list below), which aggregate their original data into the grid and calculate a set of statistics per cell: the AM, standard deviation (SD), AM and SD of ln-transformed data, minimum, median and maximum, as well as the number of measurements per cell. Note that this procedure guarantees data protection, since the original data and their exact locations remain at the national level. As new indoor radon data arrive at the JRC from participating countries, the map is updated at irregular intervals.
