Charting Change Atlas

The legacy of Burnaby's history can be seen in every corner of our city. The Charting Change Atlas presents the natural and cultural heritage of the community through the use of four interactive maps. On each map, Burnaby's heritage landmarks, historic buildings, and neighbourhoods are plotted and linked to historic photographs, artifacts, and neighbourhood histories. The atlas also makes use of Google Street View capabilities, allowing users to view many of the sites in their present context.

We would like to acknowledge and thank our project partner, the BC History Digitization Program of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, University of British Columbia, whose contribution helped make this site possible and the City of Burnaby's GIS team for recreating and updating the storytelling map in 2016 to enhance the user experience.
