Dec 5 – Dec 9 2017: King Tides

In case you’re near the water between Dec 5 and Dec 9, consider helping to document Vancouver’s changing shorelines. All you need is to be near the shoreline during King Tides with your camera phone – fun!
 
What is it?
A mobile-enabled website that allows citizens to contribute to our shared knowledge about the shoreline. The City is inviting citizens to capture photos of our shoreline at high tide and upload them to Vancouver.ca/kingtides, providing critical information to help the City better understand and prepare for the impacts of sea level rise.
 
Why now?
We are approaching King Tides, when sea levels reach their highest point in the year. By collecting data along the shoreline, people will help visualize what normal sea levels may look like in the future as sea levels rise due to climate change.
 
Please make sure that when you upload a photo you add the location, date & time at which the picture was taken.
