Snapcrap is an Android application that allows San Francisco residents to fight for cleanliness on the streets of their city. It offers to photograph garbage on roads and sidewalks, and then send the pictures to municipal services. This unofficial utility was created by volunteers.
You need to register in this app using your phone number or Facebook account. The profile will allow you to generate requests for the municipal service 311 and send photos. Please note that the utility can only be used by residents of San Francisco.
After the authorization, users have the ability to take pictures of the garbage they found on the sidewalks and streets of the city. Photos are saved in a separate folder. They are automatically marked with geolocation data – the exact location of the garbage is indicated. Next, users can form a request for the Public Works Department of San Francisco. They may send a snapshot there by clicking the appropriate button.
This will allow city services to respond to the ticket and clean up trash quickly.
Then users can then track the reviewing and completion of their requests. The utility stores the history of tickets.
