Street Spectra

STREET SPECTRA

The scientific purpose of Street Spectra is to assess the spectral contents and geographical distribution of light pollution generated by the public lighting systems.
With the help of citizen scientists dedicated observers, a database of public observations will be compiled. In practice, Street Spectra will be a mobile application where citizens scientists the observers take pictures using their smartphones and a low cost diffraction grating on top of their camera. The resulting spectra will be uploaded into the ACTION servers to allow them to be archived, classified by comparing them with well known categories (atlas of street spectra) and the results mapped.
