Mountain Legacy Project

The Mountain Legacy Project explores all that changes in Canada’s mountain landscapes. Working with the world’s largest collection of systematic historical mountain photographs, the Mountain Legacy Project follows the footsteps of intrepid surveyors to retake the original images. The project engages university researchers, managers, practitioners and keen mountain folk in understanding the how and why ecosystems, landscapes, human communities change over time. Based in the School of Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria since 1998, this project involves repeat photography, archival research, image interpretation and analysis, software development, and making these images widely available.
