The Canadian Mountain Encyclopedia is an organization based in Vancouver, British Columbia founded in 1995 to provide information on Canada's mountains. It is aimed at a similar audience to the Canadian Alpine Journal but with the articles supported by a database and mapping system.The organization maintains a structured database of mountains, trails, and backroads for western Canada. The online reference database has about 30,000 mountains, and is the authoritative source of heights, location and prominence information. Entries from this database are frequently quoted in Wikipedia, Google maps, and guidebooks such as "Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis" by John Baldwin. In October 2000, a major project was begun to determine and publish the topographic prominence of Canadian mountains. This was completed over a period of three years by the combined efforts of 30 editors, based across western Canada.
