Iodine distribution at Fukushima 4/2/11

In a recent post:

The American Health Physics Society released a map which shows how far radioactive iodine spread in the wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.  The map was generated by researchers from the Japan Atomic Energy Agency and the United States Department of Energy after they analyzed radiation data that had been gathered jointly between April 2nd and 3rd of 2011.

This is a dramatic picture, showing the release of radioactive iodine from the nuclear disaster at Fukushima.   I wonder why it took over two years to release this picture, and I wonder if there was any follow up of this information that has been collected and not published.
