About the Project

World Heritage is near us all, who live along a route from Haparanda-Tornio to Hammerfest. Realization of the fact that the Northern parts of the Struve Geodetic Arc provide an unique platform for authentic experience of science, history and nature, and not too many people utilize the opportunity yet, got us to apply for Interreg North financing for a joint cross-border project. We want to tell more stories of the Struve Geodetic Arc, combine and digitize knowledge of the Struve Geodetic Arc and surrounding area, and enable new learning experiences and product development – at the top of the World Heritage.
