The mobile application aims to facilitate the practice of orienteering. It replaces the map, the compass and the control card.
An orienteering course is composed of a start point, a series of control points, and a finish point. Controls are marked with a white and orange flag that contains an NFC and QR Code. The orienteer uses the application to find their way using the map and uses the QR Code or NFC readers to validate the control points.
The application displays at the end of the course some statistics about the completion of the course: the total time, the split time and the trace of the course on the map.
The application comes in two modes: a race mode where the orienteer is not helped for his position and a walk mode where the orienteer is positioned on the map in real time.
