Minefields.info is a mobile application we have developed to alert users to approaching a mine suspected area. We have identified a problem with people living near suspected mines, but also hikers, foresters, GSS, firefighters and anyone else moving near suspected mines. The app sounds and visuals if the user approaches within 50m, as well as a series of additional alerts if it reaches the edge of a mine suspected area. In the event that the user enters the mine suspected area despite the warnings, the application notifies him / her with the possibility of calling the help of the competent service and sends the exact location of the user in the background. There is an option in the application to report an unknown explosive device that is not within the designated mine suspected area. The application offers a short education or a list of explosive objects that can be found in nature, for the purpose of education and safety of citizens. The application has the option to change the country in which the user is located, thus one application secures the whole world.
The app was named the Best Innovation in Global Security in 2019 by GCSP.
