Subregions of GCW mapped in more detail
Understanding any place begins with learning its history. Visually, we can study ground-based and aerial photographs, going back in some cases more than a century. Oral accounts go back further. And sciences—archeology, glaciology, genetics—track landscapes and their inhabitants through deep time.
Greater Chilkat Watershed contains dozens of fascinating landscapes that are ‘atlas-worthy’ in their own right. Here we offer a growing smorgasbord of closeup views exported from my jilkaat.aprx project, and (soon) some stories and captions from residents and explorers who know them well, for each of our 19 Featured landscapes.
Components of these Featured Landscape descriptions include: ● page-flippers ● repeat photography (RP) ● stereopairs ● geopdfs
