At Litterati, we transform every image into LitterData by automatically adding a geotag and timestamp to litter photos. Our LitterAi helps you add tags to images. Tags follow the Litterati Taxonomy of object, material and brand (OMB). For example, What is found? A can (object). What is the can made out of?Aluminum (material). Who made the aluminum can? Pepsi (brand). You can find our entire taxonomy guide here.

Once you've completed your collection, have returned home, and are back on wifi, go ahead and upload your photos. Once the upload is complete, follow these steps to tag your data:

  1. Go into your “Activity” section. Once you’re in the Activity section, you can view all the images that you have uploaded.

  2. The Activity section has a toggle button at the top called "show untagged" images to help easily identify which photos need to be tagged.

  3. Select an image that you would like to tag and start typing the tags that are relevant into the bar there.

    1. You can choose to follow the standard taxonomy of OMB. Our LitterAi will also help by suggesting tags that are relevant to your image.

  4. To tag your litter, simply tap on the appropriate OMB.

    1. In this example:

      1. object is: foodcontainer

      2. material: cardboard

      3. brand: mcdonalds.

  5. Sometimes, you'll need to correct our LitterAi.

    1. In this example, the LitterAi suggested the container was made out of paper, but it was actually made of cardboard.

    2. To correct this, type in your desired tag to the "Search Tags" field above. Once you've located your desired tag, select it, and it will be applied to your litter photo.

  6. As you tag, you will also encounter litter photos with no LitterAi suggestions. When this happens, follow the steps above - type in your desired OMB tags to the "Search Tags" field above. Once you've located your desired tag, select it, and it will be applied to your litter photo. Do this for object and material (and brand if visible).

  7. When you've tagged all of your images, the "show untagged" section will have no photos left in it, which means you're done cleaning up and tagging your photos!
