The Austrian glacier inventory 1998 (GI II) is based on arial photographs taken between 1996 and 2002. 73% of the glacier area was covered in 1997 and 1998. The identification of the glacier boundaries was done manually using the stereo DEM and the orthoimages.
The reduction of ice covered area between 1969 (GI I) and 1998 (GI II) is 17%.
