The IceWatcher application allows you to report any discovery to the competent cantonal services in a few steps. To do this, the hiker must first select the type of object from the options offered (wood, textile or metal, for example). The application then prompts you to add a close-up photo of the discovery accompanied by an object giving an indication of its size (e.g. a pocket knife) and an enlarged photo. The location of the discovery is then automatically geolocated and the data is transmitted to the Archaeological Service of the Canton of Bern. The latter can then evaluate the objects identified and take the necessary measures with a view to their collection and conservation. When you find an archaeological remains, the first instinct to have is not to touch it. In addition, the place must be marked using stones and sticks to be easily located.

The IceWatcher application was launched by the Cantonal Archeology Office of the State of Valais. It can be used in the cantons of Bern, Valais, Graubünden, Uri and Vaud as well as in the Alpine regions of France, Italy and Austria.
