Raising awareness at global and local levels

Eyesea

Eyesea is a nonprofit organization with a mission to map global pollution and maritime hazards. Without proper data on maritime pollution – what and where it is – effective solutions are hard to find. In 2020 we developed the concept of using geotagged pictures to chart (‘map’ for you landlubbers) maritime pollution. Funding and support have been obtained, and our mapping solution is currently under development.

Data Collection

Those who work and play on the ocean care deeply about its health and future. Seafarers, members of the public, recreational sailors, professional mariners, fishermen, surfers, and divers all have unique access to the coast, littoral waters, the vastness of the ‘blue water’ ocean. Anyone with access to the beach can keep an eye on its health. As a community, we can help map and identify pollution simply by taking a picture through the Eyesea App.  Images are important because they are quick and easy to take, and because they have a strong impact.

Partners

Eyesea partners have an affinity with the ocean, either at a personal level or through their profession and work. They are contributing to our mission by helping us develop our tech, collecting data, and sponsoring our community. As we understand where our efforts need to focus on pollution removal, we will also look to support local authorities and clean-up actions.

Data Use

Once we have maps of maritime pollution, we will be able to use chart overlays to model the effects of current, wind, and tide on its movement and location. Ocean charts and pollution heat-maps will allow us to identify what makes up maritime pollution, and where clean up efforts can have the greatest impact.
