Use your mobile phone camera to help us monitor the erosion and recovery of Nelson's coastline by taking part in this crowd-sourced community science project.
CoastSnap is a global citizen science project to capture our changing coastlines. No matter where you are in the world, if you have a smartphone and an interest in the coast, we welcome you to participate!
Council has partnered with CoastSnap to install a specially designed phone cradle at five coastal locations in Nelson (Monaco, Tahunanui, Kinzett Terrace, the Boulder Bank, and Cable Bay). By placing your phone in the cradle, taking a photograph of the view and then sharing it using either the CoastSnap app, or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), you will become part of an international science experiment, which will help scientists monitor sea level rise and coastal erosion.
