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 4.8.13

- Fixed an issue where updating multiple offline map packages at once was not possible.
Previously, the map packages would just be deleted.
- Switched to a new background map service from Kartverket. You won't notice any difference, but please let us know if you encounter any issues with the map.
- Fixed a bug where dropdown menus sometimes became unclickable, requiring restarting the app to use dropdown menus.
- Minor bug fix to ensure that the map view does not move away from your current location when starting a new observation. Please test this and provide feedback on whether the fix is working or not. If you start a new observation from the map page in the app (main page), you should not be moved to the Oslo or Sandefjord area.

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.
