Montreal is a city with a long history and a unique cultural mix – a place to explore! Like other big cities, it grew in a succession of spectacular building booms, expanding from a little fortified town on the bank of the St Lawrence River, uphill onto terraces surrounding Mount Royal, and stretching further along the river banks — upstream toward the Great Lakes and downstream toward Quebec City, the Gulf, and the Atlantic World.

An explorer needs a map, and this site proposes an array of thematic maps for comparing various themes."The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there" (L. P. Hartley, 1953). What features of the habitat and the people shall we look at? At what scale do you want to start exploring that foreign country? From a fifteen-year project called MAP, Montréal, l'avenir du passé, we provide three starting points.
