Are you concerned about the effects of global climate change? If so, the Jungfrau Klimaguide app is for you. It provides an easy to use guide to the Jungfrau region and offers a comprehensive analysis of the noticeable changes which have already occurred there. In this area of Switzerland scientists from the University of Bern have already documented some notable alterations.
And with the help of leading journalists created the interactive app which walks the user along trails where evidence is readily available. The Jungfrau Klimaguide app uses GPS functions in the mobile device to guide the user along one of seven preset paths. Along the way the individual is cued to listen to the content upon arrival at various hot spots.
It is here where they will learn about the melting glaciers, climate research under way, and the hazards of the changing conditions. The images used are taken directly from pinpoint accurate topographic maps which show elevations and the terrain. The app is also able to indicate the user’s location along their chosen trail.
There are other Swiss map applications, such as MobileNavigator Europe and the Swiss Map Mobile iPhone Edition, but no others that provide scientific information about the effects of global change. The Jungfrau Klimaguide app is designed to function with iPhone and iPod Touch devices.
It costs $9.99 for the download and any updates will be provided entirely free of charge.
If you want to enjoy an informative hike in a truly unique location, this is an app to download.
