This Guidebook was prepared by Julie Fortin, a University of Victoria Master's student conducting her research with the Mountain Legacy Project (MLP). It is an all-in-one introduction to the project and the methods used by researchers and field staff. This document provides a brief history of the project, going back to the historical photographs taken by surveyors in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
It also walks through the methods used to obtain the extremely precise repeat photographs found on their website. Learn about the processes used to digitize historical photographs, and how researchers are able to pinpoint the exact spots where surveyors stood to capture these images. Discover the many steps field staff and researchers use to ensure the high quality and precision of the images they take. Finally, learn about the many existing and possible applications of this cutting-edge technique.
This Guidebook is a great way to get an overview of the Mountain Legacy Project as well as dive into the fine details of the methods they use.
