Instructions for 'view disc' sites

‘View disk’ sites are viewpoints meant for repeat photography with the camera on your phone. You can find these sites on the location map.

Place your phone in the cradle at the front of the disc. The phone should rest in the cradle with the camera on the left having a clear view of the glacier.

Take a photo. Make sure there are no recognizable people in the frame as we cannot use those photos. Avoid any intense filters or heavy processing. It is important that you do not crop the photo.

Upload your photographs to the archive using the online form here:
