The Cairngorms scenic photo posts project is a pioneering citizen science initiative to gather information about our landscapes as they change from day to day and year to year.

Project topic: Land


This is a citizen science project with the public gathering photographic information that will help us all to better understand and track landscape and habitat change in the National Park. The photographs that people upload will be available to everyone through the website. We think that these photographs will be useful and interesting whether you wish to observe the seasonal change of colours or the patterns of snow lie, or are studying the regeneration of trees and woodland and thinking about how our landscapes of the future might look.

The project is set to run for ten years from 2015. A long lifespan is important so that the project can make a valuable contribution to our knowledge and understanding of the National Park. Your help is vital to make this project work, so get out there with your cameras, phones and tablets! You can register to upload images as an individual or a group, making it an ideal project for walking clubs, schools and community groups to become involved in.
