Last fall me and my classmates at Stockholm University tried to figure out if it was possible to use GIS to calculate the theoretically best route choices within the sport Orienteering. Since the university is situated just north of Stockholm in the national park Djurgården which area is covered by an orienteering map, we decided to do the experiment ...

423. Eniro goes Sim City

The other day the swedish mapping and search site eniro.se updated their maps pages with a new feature they call "utsikt" which could be translated to "view".
