FlyMapper was created as a joint initiative between Zero Waste Scotland and Fly Tipping Action Wales for the reporting and management of fly tipping incidents. Developed by Exegesis, FlyMapper combines field recording of incidents via a mobile application and the management of data through a central database which is shared by multiple organisations.

The system is currently in use by 12 Local Authorities in Scotland and 15 in Wales and had recorded over 80,000 fly-tipping incidents since 2014.
FlyMapper has two components: FlyMapper Web and FlyMapper Mobile. These are two ‘views’ onto the same dataset (if you add a record on the mobile you see it on web and vice versa):
- Smartphone app utilising GPS
- Simple to use
- Works on Android and iOS devices
- Works on and off-line (using local mapping)
FlyMapper Web – similar functionality to the mobile app plus:
- User registration management
- Analysis and reporting
- Data export
- Optimised for office use on standard web browsers
