The Geograph Britain and Ireland project aims to collect geographically representative photographs and information for every square kilometre of Great Britain and Ireland.
As of August 2016, 12,585 contributors have submitted 5,039,791 images covering 275,835 grid squares, or 83.1% of the total.
Archives and mirrors
- The Internet Archive has a mirror of all Geograph data and images.
- The British Library's UK Web Archive initiative preserves snapshots of Geograph from time for its historical significance.
- A substantial number of the images (a little less than half) have been copied to the Wikimedia Commons.
All photographs and descriptions are under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share-Alike licence, so it's likely that the images have been copied to many other places, too.
Stable, with sufficient stable mirrors and archives to be considered safe for now.
