PINIT to BINIT

Pinit to Binit (known as Binit - The Rubbish App) is an international illegal garbage/waste plotter and local recycling locator app. It has a simple to use interface and is a clear and concise app, giving information about where rubbish has been illegally dumped, where the recycling facilities are in your town, and information on how to recycle and what goes in what bin.

The aim is to make this app internationally available so that users can identify areas where there has been illegal fly-tipping and they can drop a pin (PIN IT) on a map, and make the authorities aware of where it is, so that they can organise a clean-up (BIN IT).

The system is being tested by P3 Ambiental, a non-profit association based in Spain and it is having amazing results with over 30,000kg of illegal rubbish having been pinned and binned, in only 17 days.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, with an astounding estimated 22 million kilos more having been pinned, in the region local to P3 Ambiental, the clean-up task is immense. But with the track record so far, everything is possible.

Additionally, with the growing amount of recycling facilities being made available by governments, there is a growing need for up-to-date information on where these facilities are, so that the local people can take full advantage of them, and reduce their trash, aiming towards a zero waste lifestyle.

With another map based solution, P3 Ambiental has been working with regional governments, to create a mapping system for the recycling facilities in the region.

This app is the next step forward for P3 Ambiental, taking the web based system and making it more mobile, more accessible and more fun. And why shouldn't picking up trash be fun?

The project will be implemented in phases. This document outlines the ideas in full.

PHASE 1 - INTERECTIVE RUBBISH MAP
PHASE 2 - RECYLING LOCATOR MAP
PHASE 3 - GAME IMPLEMENTATION


INTRO ANIMATION IDEA




INTRO AND LOGIN PAGES

WHEN THE USERS ENTER THE APP, THERE WILL BE A SHORT ANIMATION OF THE LOGO AND THEN IT WILL OPEN THE LANGUAGE SELECTION PAGE.

THE USER WILL SELECT THE LANGUAGE THEY REQUIRE AND BE TAKEN TO A LOG IN PAGE. ON THIS PAGE, THEY HAVE THE OPTION TO LOG IN, REGISTER OR LOG IN AS A GUEST.

WHEN THEY LOG IN AS A MEMBER THEY WILL BE ABLE TO EDIT THEIR ACCOUNT DETAILS, ADD POINTS TO THE IRM (INTERACTIVE RUBBISH MAP), EDIT ANY POINTS THEY HAVE ALREADY CREATED.

IF THEY LOG IN AS A GUEST THEY WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO VIEW THE MAPS AND NOT ADD OR EDIT ANY POINTS.

IF THEY CLICK ON REGISTER THEY WILL BE TAKEN TO THE REGISTRATION PAGE. A CONFIRMATION EMAIL WILL BE SENT TO THEIR ACCOUNT TO CONFIRM THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS. THEY MUST READ AND ACCEPT THE TERMS OF USE AND THEN THEY WILL THEN BE TAKEN TO THE ACCOUNT PAGE, WHERE THEY WILL BE ABLE TO ADD A PHOTO AND MORE INFO ABOUT THEMSELVES.

FOR EACH POINT THAT THEY ADD TO THE MAP, THEY WILL RECEIVE A TOKEN WHICH WILL GO TOWARDS A PRIZE OF SOME DESCRIPTION WHEN THEY HAVE ATTAINED SUFFICENT TOKENS. THE POINTS ADDED WILL BE VERIFIED FOR ACCURACY BEFORE A TOKEN IS AWARDED.

WE NEED A WAY OF USING THE PHONES TIMESTAMP AND GPS COORDINATES AND ALSO THE PHOTOS TIMESTAMP AND EXIF GPX COORDIANTES TO COAMPRE. THIS WOULD SHOW THAT THERE HAS BEEN NO CHANGES MADE TO THE DATA AND THAT THERE IS INDEED RUBBISH AT THE INDICATED POINT.




REGISTER AND ACCOUNT PAGES





MAIN PAGE

THE MAIN PAGE OPENS TO SHOW THE FOUR MAIN SECTIONS OF THE SITE WITH THE ICONS THAT WILL APPEAR THROUGHOUT THE APP. THEY WILL NEED TO CLICK ON ONE OF THE ICONS TO PROCEED.



INTERACTIVE RUBBISH MAP PAGES

MEMBERS USING THIS SECTION CAN ADD NEW POINTS AND EDIT OR DELETE THEIR OWN POINTS.

THE MAIN PAGE OPENS WITH A VIEW OF AN AREA AROUND THE POINT WHERE THE USER IS LOCATED. IT WILL SHOW THEIR LOCATION AND ANY POINTS OF RUBBISH THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN ADDED TO THE DATABASE BY THEM OR OTHER USERS. ONCE THE USER PRESSES THE "+" BUTTON A POINT WILL BE ADDED AT THE COORDINATES THAT THEY ARE STANDING.

THERE SHOULD BE THE FUNCTIONALITY TO DRAW AN AREA ON THE MAP OR ADD A POINT. A SLIDER COULD BE ADDED TO INDICATE HOW MUCH RUBBISH IS THERE FROM A LITTLE TO SHIT LOADS!!.

THE SCREEN WILL CHANGE TO A ZOOMED-IN AREA SHOWING THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE POINT THEY HAVE JUST ADDED. A DIALOGUE BOX WILL APPEAR ALLOWING THEM TO NAME THE POINT AND TO ADD A PHOTO. DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF RUBBISH THEY CHOOSE THE COLOUR OF THE POINT THAT IS PLACED WILL CHANGE. I.E. BLUE FOR DOMESTIC WASTE AND RED FOR BUILDING WASTE. POSSIBLY ADD INDUSTRIAL WASTE AS WELL.

THE USER WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO EDIT THE POINT I.E. MOVE THE POINT, CHANGE THE NAME OR PHOTO.

ADMINISTRATORS CAN DELETE OR EDIT ALL POINTS SUBMITTED. WHEN A NEW VERIFIED POINT HAS BEEN CLEARED OF RUBBISH ADMIN TEAM WILL CHANGE ITS COLOUR TO GREEN.

HOW DO WE STOP DUPLICATE POINTS?





GOOGLE MAPS - RUBBISH LOCATOR




RECYCLING LOCATOR MAP PAGES

ANYONE CAN VIEW THESE PAGES BUT ONLY ADMINISTRATORS CAN ADD OR DELETE POINTS.

THE MAIN PAGE WILL OPEN AND SHOW THE WHOLE OF THE TOWN WHERE THE USER IS LOCATED. IT WILL SHOW THE POINT WHERE THE USER IS AND ALL THE RECYCLING CONTAINERS AND FACILITIES IN THE TOWN.

AFTER PRESSING THE SEARCH ICON, THE USER WILL THEN BE ABLE TO SELECT THE TYPE OF CONTAINER THEY ARE LOOKING FOR.

THE NEXT SCREEN WILL THEN SHOW THEM THE NEAREST CONTAINER TO THEIR POSITION AND THE ROUTES TO GET THERE. THEY WILL THEN BE ABLE TO SELECT ALTERNATE MODES OF TRANSPORT AND ONE OF THE ROUTES SHOWN. CLICKING ON THE "?" BUTTON WILL TAKE THEM TO INFORMATION PAGES ABOUT THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CONTAINERS AND WHAT TYPE OF RUBBISH CAN BE PLACED IN THEM.

THE RESULTS WILL NOT JUST BE THE CONTAINERS WITHIN A SET DISTANCE. IT SHOULD SHOW THE NEAREST CONTAINERS. FOR ITEMS THAT CAN BE RECYCLED IN THEIR TOWN, IT WILL SHOW THE NEAREST POINT AND A FEW OTHE POINTS. IF THEY WANT OT RECYCLE AN ITEM AND THERE IS NO FACILITY IN THE TOWN IT SHOULD SHOW THEM WHERE THAT CONTAINER OR FACILITY IS, EVEN IF IT IS 100 KM AWAY.

(MAYBE ADD A BUTTON SO THAT THE USER CAN SEND A REPORT IF THE POSITION OF THE CONTAINER IS INCORRECT?)

GROUPS, ASSOCIATIONS AND COLLECTIVES

EVERY USER WILL HAVE THEIR OWN ACCOUNT, BUT IT WOULD BE GREAT IF THERE COULD ALSO BE A WAY FOR A GROUP TO BE CREATED. THIS COULD BE AN OPTION WITH A FEE ATTACHED. SO THAT IF A GOVERNMENT AGENCY OR ASSOCIATION IS ORGANISING A CLEAN-UP CAMPAIGN, THEY COULD ADD ALL THE USERS TO THE GROUP, AND INSTEAD OF EACH GROUP MEMBER ADDING FOTOS AND DATA, THE GROUP LEADER DOES THIS, AND ALL THE GROUPS MEMBER SHARE THE REWARDS.



CAN IT BE RECYCLED SECTION

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT SURE ABOUT WHAT CAN AND CANNOT BE RECYCLED. THE ABILITY TO SEARCH VIA KEYWORD OR ITEM NAME TO SEE IF THAT ITEM CAN BE RECYCLED, IF IT CAN BE RECYCLED IT WILL GIVE YOU LINKS TO THE RECYCLING PROCESS AND TO SHOW YOU THE COLLECTIONS POINTS NEAR TO YOU.



PUSH NOTIFICATIONS

MESSAGE APPEARS ON SCREEN OF MOBILE DEVICE WHEN YOU ARE NEAR A POINT THAT NEEDS TO BE CLEANED.

GAME - AWARD SCHEME

CAN WE IDENTIFY FORM THE GPS WETHER THE RUBBISH IS IN AN URBAN OR RURAL AREA?

AWARDS ARE ATTAINED BY ADDING PINS AND FOR COLLECTING RUBBISH.

3 SIDES TO THE RUBBISH IDENTIFICATION AND COLLECTION

1) EACH ITEM OF RUBBISH COLLECTED WHETHER IN URBAN OR RURAL AREA IS REWARDED WITH 1 POINT (TOKEN). BASICALLY, TAP THE SCREEN AND TAKE A PHOTO. AS THIS RUBBISH IS, IN THEORY BEING COLLECTED, IT WILL NOT PIN IT AS A RUBBISH POINT TO BE COLLECTED, BUT AS A POINT THAT HAS BEEN CLEARED. THE CLEARED POINT STAYS ACTIVE FOR A SET PERIOD I.E. 1 MONTH.

2) PINNING LARGER AMOUNTS OF RUBBISH THAT NEED TO BE CLEARED BY A PROFESSIONAL OR GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY. THIS WILL BE ALLOCATED A SET AMOUNT OF POINT (TOKENS). THIS POINT IS IDENTIFIED AND GUARDED ON A MAP, AND AN EMAIL SENT TO ANY APPRORIATE AUTHORITY WTHAT WILL BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM, UNLESS THE SOMEONE, THE PERSON WHO IDENTIFIED THE AREA OR ANOTHER PERSON COMES AND CLEANS THE AREA. ONCE IT HAS BEEN CLEARED IT REMAINS ON THE MAP FOR 1 MONTH AS A CLEARED AREA. THERE SHOULD ALSO BE A MAP THAT SHOWS EVERY POINT THAT HAS EVER BEEN ADDED, AS THIS WILL SHOW THE RUBBISH THAT HAS BEEN CLEARED AS AN OVERALL PICTURE AND MAY HELP IN PIN POINTING SPECIFIC PROBLEM AREAS.

3) THE GAME ASPECT OF THE APP. THIS STILLS NEEDS A LOT OF PLANNING

INDIVIDUAL PLAYER - A PLAYER CAN TAP AS THEY COLLECT RUBBISH IN THEIR DAILY LIFE. WALKING TO WORK OR SCHOOL ETC. THEY COULD HAVE A DAILY OR WEEKLY STREAK, SO THAT IF THEY COLLECT NO RUBBISH ON ONE DAY THEY GET A MESSAGE TO LET THEM KNOW. MAYBE A GPS ROUTE COULD ALSO BE PLOTTED TO SHOW HOW MANY CALORIES THEY HAVE USED WHILST COLLECTING RUBBISH. POSSIBLY A CHART OF RUBBISH TO CALORIE RATIOS OR THE IMPACT THEIR ACTIVITY IS HAVING ON THEIR OWN CARBON FOOTPRINT.

GROUP ACTIVITY - THERE COULD BE 2 LEAGUE TABLES, A GROUP LEAGUE TABLE THAT YOU ADD YOUR FRIENDS TO AND AN INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE TABLE. AS A GROUP, YOU COULD GO TO AN AREA WHERE THERE IS RUBBISH AND SET THE TIMER FOR SAY 1 HOUR. EACH MEMBER COLLECTS AS MUCH RUBBISH AS THEY CAN IN THAT TIME AND BRINGS IT BACK TO A SPECIFIC SPOT, WHERE THEY WILL TAKE A PHOTO. IS THERE A WAY THAT THE APP COULD JUDGE WHO HAS COLLECTED THE MOST RUBBISH FROM A PHOTO? ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE AWARDED TOKENS BASED ON THEIR FINISHING POSITIONS.

THIS TOKEN AWARD SCHEME IS JUST AN IDEA, WE WOULD NEED TO FIGURE THIS OUT IN MORE DETAIL.
PIN A POINT - 1 Token
PIN A POINT WITH PHOTO - 3 Tokens
PIN A POINT WITH PHOTO & VERIFY - 5 Tokens
CLEAR A POINT WITH VERIFICATION - 10 Tokens

5 TOKENS = Bronze Star (5 Tokens)

2 BLUE STARS = Green Star (20 Tokens)
2 GREEN STARS = Bronze Medal (40 Tokens)
2 BRONZE MEDALS = Blue Medal (80 Tokens)
