Abstract: The alpine snowcover in the mid-latitudes is important in risk management, climatic and hydrologic context. An accurate mapping of snowcover and estimation of snow characteristics requires snow to be distinguished from other surface cover and from clouds. In order to become useful, the information about snow characteristics, have to be available for large areas and to be provided on regular bases for various types of users. MODIS sensors together with GIS data can provide this kind of information but their joint use require a long-time validation. This validation was carried out fusioning meteorological data together with satellite observation and GIS information.
