The application uses GPS to locate the user in the nature, and according to his/her location and previous usage, generates information about activities and possible threats. This application represents a link that connects 21 century technology benefits and the old fashion way of doing activities in nature.

At the same time, the proposed solution represents a high level tourist guide. It also increases environmental awareness, strengthens ecological conscience, preserves national treasures. This is done by direct collaboration between users (adding points of interest like activities, animal, plants). The main contribution of our work is providing proof of concept of the ways new technology can influence few different domains (health, ecology, human culture) at the same time. The proposed solution is service oriented and contextaware, implemented in android environment using java for developing the services
