Abstract: The intent of this poster presentation is to demonstrate the various GIS data layers used in the documentation and analysis of snow profiles and avalanche paths. These posters will present a flow chart defining the workflow of this data in a GIS. The historical avalanche path data is loaded in to a database that can relate the hard copy snowpit and weather data. These data layers can be displayed over other GIS base layers such as DEM, DRG, DOQ, soils/geology, and vegetation cover. Integration of realtime weather and snow profile data can be added to this for analysis. I will correlate these types of data and explain how they could be used in analysis to enhance predictions and provide more information. Digital data collection tools will be displayed that can load new data directly in to a GIS Database with little hand entry.
