Mapping Plastic Flotsam and Jetsam

Develop an app to allow citizen scientists and beachcombers to record instances of plastics being washed up on-shore, and place them on a map.

 

People are already forming Facebook groups for their local area to share finds and ask for help in identifying objects being washed up. Adding a spatial element, and allowing the data to be downloaded, would allow a more detailed picture of the problem to emerge.
