There were several significant challenges. One was to create an application that is both visually appealing and simple to use for the average user. Second, the system should be designed in such a way that the anonymity of the user reporting the activity is maintained at all times. The third challenge was to create an application that is fully functional in offline mode, taking into account that in most cases, data coverage in forests is quite poor.
Our approach started with a research of several existing applications already implemented on the market. We organised several meetings with key partners on the project, including the authorities in order to make sure application complies with the local laws. We had several design iterations with a closed testing group until the desired look and functionality of the application was achieved.
The result is one of the best applications of this type currently on the mobile stores. It features offline capabilities, real time updates, complete anonymity of the users reporting actives and a fully functional dashboard for representatives of the law that allows them to quickly respond to any report and prevent further damage to BiH forests.
