IceCream Team

A multiside platform for scientific
research and sustainable tourism

The platform consists of two interlinked tools, L.I.V.E. Glacier and the IceKing App. One couldn't exist without the other in a virtuous circle. The IceKing App helps tourists organise a sustainable glacier trip, and asks them to upload geo-referenced photographs of the glacier through their smartphone, which are then fed into the LIVE Glacier Website. LIVE Glacier provides downloadable scientific data on glacier surface velocities and footprints obtained from satellite data and from the crowsdsourced photographs. This data is also translated into updated infographics on glacier health which are fed back to the Iceking App to raise tourists’ awareness on climate change.
