Frequently on the water with your smartphone? Want to help the environment and your community? Now you can by reporting large marine debris with the Clean Marine App!
Simply install and tell the app what kind of debris you are looking at using my friendly and attractive user interface. Clean Marine will grab your gps coordinates and take a picture for you. All of this information is packaged and sent to the proper regulatory authority to be added to a database of marine debris. This lets the governing bodies know the quantity and quality of debris in their region so they can better prioritize where funds are going.
If you are not currently connected to the internet when you spot the debris, your data will be saved and sent when your phone is back online. This app also allows you to manually enter information about a piece of marine debris if you have spotted something and gps'ed it when you didn't have your cell on you.
This is currently in the pilot-beta stage: as with all apps, please let me know of any concerns instead of putting negative reviews on the market, it is just as quick and will allow me to address your problems.
