Mountain land restoration - Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

The map provides access to the geolocated pictures of this collection, with a navigation by municipality. For each municipality, you will find all the photographs taken in that particular area.

It is a selection of photographs taken in the department that is presented here. The Archives Nationales hold "merely" 1,805 photographs from a much larger collection held by the departmental archives of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence (formerly the Basses-Alpes department).

The collection is organised by forest conservation area around a river, a stream or main torrent, defined by the forest services, and then by series (equivalent to a municipality, a forest or a secondary branch of the main torrent) in alphabetical order within an area.

The title of the photograph generally contains a full description of the view.
