Vancouver - British Columbia

Downtown Aerial Overview

This series of images provides a 360 degree observation of the downtown core. It is presented in a numbered sequence continuing until a full circle is achieved. In most of the images there is an visual connection to a focal point in a previous image, providing continuity. The circle begins in Burrard Inlet, with Canada Place at the left edge, on the North side of the city, proceeds west along Stanley Park, over the Lions Gate Bridge, south around the park, east along the West End, north at the end of False Creek and back west to finish over Coal Harbour just west of Canada Place.
