The techno­logical concept

Eyes on plastic includes frequent measures of floating plastic and debris by satellite sensors and fixed cameras (CCTVs). In addition, it builds on citizens’ reports of plastic occurrences at coasts, rivers and water surface. This crowdsource solution allows to attach geopositioning and time for reported plastic occurrences. These images in return are used to improve the AI algorithms of the CCTVs. Furthermore, the webapp enables users to report scientific publications and other relevant articles with a geo-referenced information. All in all, the solution draws a comprehensive picture of plastic pollution and makes it accessible to the public.
