Help The City of Vancouver Document Sea Level Rise

The City of Vancouver is asking for your help to document king tides and rising sea levels this December & January to test their flood prediction models.

Follow these three easy steps to help:

  1. Visit their sea level rise StoryMap to find out the daily times of high tide and recommended locations to take photos.
  2. From December 5-9 and January 2-7, head to the water and snap photos of the shoreline with your phone or digital camera.
  3. Upload your photos on the StoryMap to provide the City with critical information to improve their understanding of sea level rise. If you have access to a data-enabled phone, you can upload photos immediately through your browser.
