Scotland’s Coastal Rubbish Aerial Photography (SCRAPbook)
SCRAPbook is an innovative project using aerial photography collected by light aircraft to identify visible macro litter on the coast. During 2018 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.

Map data available indicates point data locations for litter intensity.
