Scotland’s Coastal Rubbish Aerial Photography (SCRAPbook) uses aerial photography collected by light aircraft to identify visible macro litter on the coast. During 2018 and 2019 images were collected from all accessible areas of the Scottish mainland coast, producing a ‘snapshot’ of macro litter distribution. A coordinated team of citizen scientists assessed the images for data intensity and litter types and a spatial data set generated to map these locations. Litter was assessed on an intensity scale from 0 – 5.
