About Varsom

Improve planning for winter trips into the hills and mountains or on frozen lakes. Prevent damage from floods with better knowledge. Report where you have seen avalanches. Together we can save lives and reduce damages due to avalanches, floods, landslides and dangerous ice conditions.

This app gathers in one place the most important features from the Varsom Platform needed in the outdoors, for field inspections and for readiness, crisis management and rescue situations. Observations from, warnings from, and support maps from and are included.

The app is also available in English, such that visitors from abroad may read and submit observations, as well as receive warnings. As a bonus, the app now works well outside Norway.

Varsom and the warning services for avalanches, landslides, ice conditions and floods are services provided by the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) in co-operation with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

What’s New

Version 4.7.7

- Fixed an error that logged you out if you went offline
- Notify if you need to log in before you submit an observation
- Better error message if you are not able to log in because you are offline
- When you set a location for your observation, the GPS marker is back. Note: We will keep the map extent you had, so you need to push the GPS button in order to use your location for your observation
- You will get notified if any images were not uploaded

Bug in observation map

Crashes when zooming on observation map, taking you to a page which suggests downloading the app!!!!

Otherwise good. Easy reporting and clear hazard assessments.
