Project Overview

We built a map viewer and data reporting application for the Friends of the Northwest Avalanche Center. Originally, this application showed the daily avalanche forecasts produced by the Northwest Avalanche 
Center (NWAC).

Later, as forecast criteria changed, the tool evolved into a tool for the public to report snowpack conditions and avalanches 
to NWAC, to aid in making timelier and more accurate avalanche condition assessments. This map was built using the open source Leaflet API and connects directly to the NWAC database through a public API.
