A team of researchers and entrepreneurs from MobyGIS, Eurac Research, and Sinergise, were funded by the European Space Agency to create the first service that monitors water reserves stored in the snow in the entire Alpine range and provides high-resolution real-time maps. The prototype can be tested free of charge for the next six months before it becomes commercialized.
