MLP is an interdisciplinary collaboration focused on exploring change in Canada's mountain environments. Utilizing over 140,000 images taken by land surveyors from 1861 - 1953, MLP researchers seek to re-photograph these images as accurately as possible and make the resulting image pairs available for further investigation. For more information on the project check out www.mountainlegacy.ca
Explorer is a map-based tool designed to allow anyone with a modern web browser to investigate the MLP collection. Clicking on a map point will show historic and modern comparative photographs. More images are added as they are completed, so visit often to see what's new!
