Abstract (in English)

Vast North American territory, the Province of Québec, Canada, was faced, like other regions, with the urgent task of protecting its old cultures through the identification and inventory of their mater1al manifestations, and in particular, those making up its architectural heritage. Traditional methods involving preliminary inventories or preinventories were deemed nat only ill-suited to meeting the expectations of the parties concerned, but also too slow in view of the rapid erosion of its historical ressources as the 2Oth century draws to a close. Given the limited success of such methods, the Province of Québec therefore opted in 1976 for a new type of pre-inventory based on low-altitude aerial photography. Both the results obtained and their particular uses are geared to the needs of the specialists from all disciplines who are entrusted with managing and thereby protecting old cultures.
