Short summary
Snow avalanche data in the French Alps and Pyrenees have been recorded for more than 100 years in several databases. In this manuscript, we present a newly developed web-based system that stores the observed data in a global avalanche database and assists the observers in their daily monitoring activity by providing coherent workflows for a wide range of users with different roles. The new system improves the quality of data and is widely used for fundamental research and operational purposes.
