Possible future app improvements

  • display of uncertainties into the graphic

  • possibility to choose between absolute and percentage change of volume

  • adding a map in which the user can select glaciers

  • implement tick-boxes for choosing the displayed RCP-scenarios

  • two dropdown menus to give the opportunity that every region can be compared to every other region/country
