Maritime navigation has been challenging for a lot of centuries. International borders have not been clear in case of Sea routes. This affects chiefly fishing community who has to go to deep sea on regular basis. In maritime conditions, finding borders can be tricky given a lot of factors. We design GPS-based location for alerting users from crossing international waters. The users can access their location using GPS and the alert system is activated for border crossing across international waters. Though many solutions have been proposed for specific location based issues, they provide solutions for a specific group of users such as Tamil fishermen at Rameshwaram. The proposed system is not confined to one specific location but to every border on this world. It can be configured to a specific set of borders depending on the state or country etc. The border data can be feed from Internet sources. since these data is subject to change due to various political, geographical and various other reasons, it has to be updated regularly by experts in the field. We use an API called GEOCoder which is on-line/off-line Geo-location API which accurately determines the location.
