Great meeting

in the new great facilities of the National Board of Antiquities yesterday.

The archaeologists work in the building to the right (Sturenkatu 4), the Kulttuuritalo concert hall is to the left.

Wonderful new office spaces compared to the old ones at Nervanderinkatu  in a newly renovated house by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto (1958). Lots of nice features  in the form of original lamps and even  furniture in the entrance hall to the archaeologists working spaces! In the concert venue which belongs to the building complex many famous rock  stars have performed over the years, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin only to name a few.

Jimi rocks Kulttuuritalo 22.5.1967.

From Simo I got a lot of very good info on new measuring and documentation methods and different applications for mapping and maps in general. SPARTAN, CARMIN, TATUK GIS, MS IMAGE COMPOSITE ED and many many more. A wonderful day altogether that gave both of us many new ideas on cooperation in the future. I´m going to start learning these new apps immediately to see what they can do :)

Below are some great links to those of you that are interested in old maps, thanks for these links too Simo!
