An explorer needs a map, and this site proposes an array of thematic maps for comparing various themes. 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 the viewpoint of the hawk overhead to the pigeon in the gutter, we will discover populations — people in the aggregate — and the families and family members in their own houses, in streets we know today by different names and glass façades. From twenty-year project called MAP, Montréal, l'avenir du passé, we propose here several fascinating interactives maps.
"The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there"
L. P. Hartley, 1953
