My role for this project:
Snow avalanches are the most the significant natural hazard in Europe's mountain areas during in the winter. Changing conditions concerning mainly snowfall and snowpack in these areas, coupled with the increase in winter activities, tourism, urbanization and lifelines, are responsible for catastrophic avalanches causing significant human losses and structural damages.
This application and magazine is a concept for avalanche prediction, prevention and relief and distribution of information to the public. The specific areas are Austria, France, Iceland, Italy, Spain and Switzerland based on the research.
From European Commission Joint Research Center, In this 50-year study, the snow avalanches are the major natural hazard in Europe's mountain areas during the winter. On average, they cause about 100 deaths in Europe every year as well as severe damage to mountain villages and settlements, infrastructures and forests. Avalanche consequences are particularly grave in Alpine countries such as France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
This book tells you everything there is to know about safety and instruction while skiing, with thousands of helpful details about the ski resorts and cross-country and backcountry venues.
Web based GPS-enabled snow plow tracking management system to integrate the snow management application with GPS devices in user fleet vehicles for live tracking.
A newsroom is the central place where ski community can access the local avalanche situations.

His new to skiing. He gets concerned after many people have warned him to be careful about avalanches. It would be great if he has enough information before he goes skiing.
Some feedback from classmate and instructor:
• The app looks too separated between Newsfeed and Dashboard.
• Too many details on Dashboard about signal (Too much information)
• The authentication system to check the peer before entering to the terrain zone.
