Drones are being used by AnimaMundi Ocean Data Solutions, DJI, and Lagoon to create a global database of plastic pollution on beaches. The non-profit organization AnimaMundi is situated in Geneva, Switzerland. Its unique technology analyses photo and video files to calculate the number of single-use plastic bottles. The data can be collected with the help of an app that uses still photography and photographs from Drones.
The data is uploaded, processed, and stored on the company’s servers automatically. The information will be used to make decisions about environmental investments and to assess the impact of waste management strategies. The procedure begins with DJI Drones being operated by sailors competing in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC), which started on Nov. 21 in Las Palmas, Canary Islands. Lagoon, a sailing catamaran cruiser manufacturer, used DJI Drones to measure plastic garbage on beaches throughout the Caribbean.
The urgent urgency for climate action is balanced by the requirement for adequate and effective financing. This type of big data will aid in determining action priorities. Since 2005, Lagoon has been a supporter of the ARC rally. The company urges its owners to join the Club Lagoon initiative, which aims to reduce plastic pollution in our oceans by using data collected by Drones.
