The map covers the Cathedral Massif Glacier with its proglacial area and the surrounding terrain - altogether an area of about 5.2 square kilometers. The small cirque glacier is located in the Cathedral Massif on the continental slope of the northern Boundary Range in British Columbia, Canada. The field survey and the terrestrial photogrammetry was carried out in July 1977. In addition aerial photos taken in August 1975 were used for the photogrammetric plotting. Due to the lack of connection with the official Canadian geodetic net, a local net was used. The main objective of the mapping was to document the present-day glacier with its specific topographical features of the forefield. The map is printed in five colours in offset. The surface area of the glacier was 1.71 square kilometers in 1977 and has further reduced since then. During the stage of "maximum" neoglacial extend, the glacier area must have been close to 2.8 square kilometers.
