Thank you. I would like to believe that radiation levels are not increasing and spreading, but I have read too much about what is being hidden from the public to feel reassured. Please see the following link for instance as to why I am concerned - theintelhub.com...
I'm not sure where you're getting this. That link has a slideshow explaining the data:

Of course radiation levels are getting worse, but that doesn't mean the reactors are spewing out more and more, it just means the long-lived isotopes are piling up making things more contaminated.
Yes the link in the OP has more reliable data. The slides say the data is based on fixed wing and helicopter flights from April 6 to April 29th, not a forecast or a simulation but actual measurements. That link doesn't even show Xe-133, or I-131. The main measurements are ground level dose in uSv/hr, and C-137.
I went through that link before and all of those maps are simulations and not actual forecasts. I had this discussion in another thread, but they seem to lose credibility with the fact that they map the shortest living isotopes as the highest concentrations, which well is backwards. Xe-133 has a half life of only 5 days, I-131 has a half life of only 8 days were as C-137 is around 30 years.
