The Defra FlyMapper Project has now closed.
Defra launched a pilot of Exegesis’s FlyMapper smartphone app for the purpose of recording fly-tipping incidents on private land in order to collect data to better understand the extent of fly-tipping nationally. This pilot project was also designed to test the usability of FlyMapper for landowners and determine whether this is a tool that will be beneficial in the long-term.
The pilot has now reached the end of its planned three month trial period and therefore, as of 5th June 2020, the app will no longer be available. Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, over 150 people registered and nearly 350 incidents were logged.
We would like to thank you for your participation over the past three months. The data provided will help build an evidence base that will be used to inform decision-making and policy interventions. Defra will be evaluating the success of this pilot and will report back on this at the next National Fly-Tipping Prevention Group on which your organisation is represented.
Our thanks to Exegesis for their engagement with the project and for providing the FlyMapper solutions which we understand performed well throughout.
