Climate change is changing mountains - creating new needs for safety and adaptation. Timely geo-localized information about mountain hazards is still hard to get. Most of the time, people go to the mountains missing critical information. Public/Private actors make decisions missing critical data – impacting thousands of lives and costing the outdoor/tourism/insurance industry millions.
MountaiNow is an interactive live-map of mountain hazards for Europe and the world. Highly innovative is the combination of real-time crowdsourcing, space/satellite insight (Copernicus Sentinel data), Big Data analytics, and guided navigation – offering a new/unique set of actionable information. One key feature of MountaiNow is to allow for the easy capture and real-time sharing of critical hazard observations such as rock-falls, landslides, snow/ice avalanches, glacial lakes, and high river-discharge. Observations of hazard precursor signs such as glacier melt or fractured snow-pack are also included. The year-round service is already fully operational - available in four languages (English, French, German, Italian) and live as mobile app (android, iOS) and web-app
