The Collaborative ORDnance data repository (CORD) enables web-based search of landmine and other Explosive Ordnance (EO) data to assist humanitarian demining and ordnance disposal operations.

CORD is a database of conventional ordnance intended to be used by Humanitarian Mine Action users. While other legitimate users are welcome, recent misuse of the database by those not connected to Humanitarian Mine Action has necessitated that CORD move to a registration model.

CORD is jointly owned by the Center for International Stabilization and Recovery ( at James Madison University and the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD). The CORD search tool was designed and developed by the GICHD, Ripple Design, and Mindlark.
