Marine Debris Tracker for the Sailing Community
University of Georgia’s Marine Debris Tracker mobile app allows for the collection of global standardized marine debris data at a scale, speed and efficiency that was not previously possible. This project adapted the app to support the sailing and marine community by allowing users to log debris observed while underway. This project will also engage the sailing community to increase use of the app, and also educate sailors so they understand how they can help address the issue of debris and litter in our oceans and waterways.
