Pirika allows its users to upload and share with other users’ pictures of litter that they pick up, and maps the litter data based on those uploads. They also provide free data visualization services for clean-up efforts of companies and other organizations. Their Takanome AI-based program maps and measures litter using visual recognition technology. Takanome-based research has been used in numerous projects to identify anti-litter solutions, by providing, among others, analyses of placement of designated smoking areas and public trash bins and effectiveness of anti-litter patrol.
