Mapping Canada’s Glaciers Since 1965

  • C.S.L. Ommanney (a1)

Abstract

The extent and nature of Canadian glacier mapping since 1965 is traced, from snout surveys to high-order, large-scale maps, Swiss-style publications and stereo-orthophoto maps. Many maps were produced during the IHD for specific tasks, such as the determination of mass balance, plotting of isolines, etc; most were multi-coloured, with scales ranging from 1:5000 to 1:25 000. Subsequent developments have been with cartographic techniques (e.g. orthophoto maps) and in support of individual projects.
