Abstract: Since 1970, the French Government has been supporting a large program of avalanche mapping, which takes two different forms: hazard "registration" maps (Cartes de Localization Probable des Avalanches or CLPA) and hazard zoning maps (Plans des Zones Exposees aux Avalanches or PZEA). After a presentation of the mapping method, we present here the recent second edition of the CLPA as a "dynamic" map, insofar as it is entirely digitized and kept up to-date using the ARC/INFO® (ESRI) G.I.S. software.
