Photo-Interpretation, Digital Mapping, and the Evolution of Glaciers in Glacier National Park, B.C.

  • André Champoux (a1) and C.S.L. Ommanney (a1)

Abstract

The inventory of Glacier National Park, B.C., has provided an opportunity to test a number of new procedures which might be applied to future Canadian glacier inventories. The objectives of this particular study were to complete a tripartite inventory based on available map and photo sources and develop an automated system of data acquisition and processing. The conjunction of the two has permitted an analysis of the evolution of the glaciers in this area during the last 100 years. The techniques used and a summary of the results are reported.
