Geiger Bot is a companion app for Geiger counters, providing you with a toolkit for recording, mapping, analyzing, and sharing Geiger counter data.

Whether you need a numeric display for an old analog counter, mapping, graphing and extensive logging for even a digital counter, or online automated data sharing via Cosm(Pachube), Geiger Bot can be of use.

Geiger Bot just works. As soon as you start up the app, Geiger Bot will get to work without any configuration necessary in most cases. This is done using adaptive signal processing and your device's microphone input. Geiger Bot also supports a direct line-in connection via the headset jack for superior results.

To optimize accuracy it is recommended you place the Geiger counter's speaker by your device's microphone. Background noise matters much less than a strong signal from the Geiger counter's speaker.

Experimentally Geiger Bot now supports scintillation counters and gamma spectroscopy with isotope ID lists; it is similar in concept to the Windows programs PRA and FitzPeaks.

For more advanced users, Geiger Bot allows you to assume direct control of the audio engine parameters for signal processing. There is a console with detailed status messages to assist in troubleshooting. You can configure an offset count for your tube, the conversion factor, measurement time intervals, radiation alarms, and more.

Geiger Bot can also log a great deal of data to your device's internal flash memory, and send it as an email attachment in CSV format. With log sampling resolution down to 1 second intervals, you can import this data into a spreadsheet and produce very high resolution plots of radiation data. With an iOS spreadsheet such as Numbers, you can perform detailed analysis and graphing of logged data on your device itself.

Geiger Bot features an integrated mapping module for displaying your logged data with a false-color palette to highlight intensity levels of radiation similar to a thermal camera.

Further, Geiger Bot comes with extensive preloaded mapping databases:
1. - large amount of ground vehicle surveys (mostly Japan)
2. US DOE/NNSA aerial gamma ray surveys of Japan
3. USGS NURE aerial gamma ray surveys of the continental US
4. US EPA uranium mines database

All of this data can be displayed simultaneously.

If you encounter any problems or Geiger Bot has issues adapting to your counter, please email me and I'll try to get a fix into the next release.

What’s New

Version 1.7.1

- Performance improvements, reduced power consumption, misc bugfixes.

- Tile engine: improved performance and reduced memory use.
- "Highlight changes" layer sensitivity increased by 1000x. Additionally, the entire tile is now slightly tinted to make finding changes between dataset updates easier.
- Realtime IDW interpolation available as a custom layer preprocessing effect. This interpolates a continuous surface of values from scattered points, such as measurements collected along roads. The results should not be considered statistically valid.

Gamma Spectroscopy:
- Significantly improved gamma spectroscopy DSP in accuracy, compatibility, and acquisition rate. Thanks and credit to Marek Dolleiser.
- Existing spectroscopy users: you will need to re-train your pulse shape.
- Expanded in-app setup help.
- Histogram: faster refresh rate.

- Oscilloscope display of input waveform added to assist with setup and troubleshooting hardware.
- Note: this is displayed using the gamma spectroscopy histogram. Gamma spectroscopy mode must be disabled to see it.

CPM / Dose Rate Display:
- Smoothing added to primary numeric rate display for a connected device.
- This can be disabled in Settings -> Display if desired.

- パフォーマンスの向上、消費電力の低減、その他バグ修正。

- タイルエンジン:パフォーマンスの向上と使用メモリの低減。
- “変化が強調表示”されたレイヤーの感度を1000倍に増強 。さらに、全体のタイルはデータセットの更新による変化が簡単にわかるように薄く着色される。
- カスタムレイヤーの前処理効果としてリアルタイムIDWの挿入が可能となる。これにより、道路沿いに収集した測定結果等のように統計的には無効と考えられるような分散した測定点から、連続した表面へと有用性が高められた。

- 正確性、互換性、および取得率が大幅に改善されたガンマ線分光DSP は、Marek Dolleiser氏の功績であり謝意を表する。
- 既存分光器のユーザー:パルス形状を再調整する必要あり。
- アプリ内のセットアップヘルプの拡大。
- ヒストグラム:更新頻度の向上。

オシロスコープ :
- 注:これはガンマ線分光ヒストグラムを使用して表示される。これを見るためには、ガンマ線分光モードを無効にする必要がある。

CPM /線量率表示:
- これは設定で無効にすることができる(必要に応じてディズプレイに表示)。

It says Geiger Bot needs to be updated?

It states thatGeiger bot needs to be updated. But it’s not letting me download the update or updates. Please help address and fix. I really do need access to this information. This is a wonderful app and sati light is very clear and correct. Most updated usually. I also need to keep track of things my Grandfather has in certain areas of the USA. He was Neil Armstrong CEO of NASA. He was also known as Rhino Rhyne In Wilmington NC. 💯🙋‍♂️ my name is Casey Admiral Pharr his grandson. I’m also part of the Army Corps of Engineers and this is how I kept track of certain elements inside of the earth on our property 💯🙋‍♂️👨‍🚀🌎🇺🇸👍

This app works amazing good when configured correctly. I use a GS 1100a to drive a Nal(T)
crystal detector at 800 volts. And supply audio to iPad mic input with low noise audio cable and Peterson strobebosoft guitar (iRig) adapter. The iPad mic input inverts audio +\-. So, Geiger Bot sees signal inverted. To correct, rewire at audio input plug wire + for - terminals. Use Gamma Spectacular setting in Custom Tube menu.
Then, in Pulse Shape Training menu select 32 bit sample rate. Return to scintillation screen to view Gamma Photon Spectrums.

Works great!

I connected my Geiger Counter kit (from MightyOhm) to the iPhones microphone input using a home-made little circuit I found on the web. Ran this software, and it works as advertised, very nice! Even has a calibration for the GM tube I'm using (SBM-20), so I can get results in "real units", not just CPM.

If this app doesn't work for you, I'd suggest you do some research first on how to properly connect and use it before leaving 1 star ratings. The software DOES work, and works well, but you do have to know what you are doing!

My next project is building a a scintillation counter to try the Gamma Ray Spectroscopy out!

Thanks for a great app!
