This "Landmine Awareness" application aims to introduce individuals to the risks when travelling to countries with a landmine threat.
By better understanding landmines, how they function and being able to identify where landmines might be found will help prevent further injury and death caused by landmines throughout the world every day.
The free section of the app introduces the incentive of why we should all consider landmine awareness before travelling to countries with a landmine issue.
Included is free access to the anti-personnel blast landmine section of the landmine database.
This allows individuals to have a better understanding of what an anti-personnel landmine visually looks like on the ground.
With the in-app purchase to the additional awareness training individuals can view how the landmine functions, how to prevent a mine-strike and what to do in a minefield.
For specific details on landmines access to the "Landmine Database" allows viewing of the "Landmine by Type" and the varying landmines deployed throughout the world.
A further in-app purchase allows access to all categories of landmine database including both anti-personnel and anti-vehicle landmines.
For specific landmines within a country the "Landmine By Country" details some of the landmines that may be encountered within those countries boundaries.
Regular updates and customer contributions will ensure this is as up to date and developing application. Please note within the app are graphic images of landmine victims and these are by default restricted viewing.
By accessing the settings page these images can then be set for normal viewing. Please also consider this application is deemed not suitable for unsupervised children's viewing.
So whether considering, travelling to, or actually in a country with a landmine problem individuals can be better informed and aware about the problems of landmines and what to do in a landmine situation.
