The Mountain Legacy Project is a long-term study of landscape, ecological and cultural change in the mountainous regions of western Canada. Based on the world's largest systematic collection of historical survey photographs (>120,000), since 1996 field teams have been repeating historical images from exactly the same locations, and studying the sometimes dramatic changes over roughly a century.
This is an interdisciplinary project, engaging students and faculty from environmental studies, geography, renewable resources, biology, anthropology, history and computer sciences.
There are limitless possibilities for research. If you are interested in more information, please check out mountainlegacy.ca. For a comprehensive look at the image collections (>6,000 image pairs), please check out our Explorer web app. Check out the Future Ecologies podcast for more information about the project.
