Maps in Lund
Lund, Sweden was founded sometime between 990 and 1020, and is filled with treasures for visitors today. According to the Wikipedia, it is applying to be a “European Capital of Culture” in 2014, when a Swedish city again has a turn to hold this honor. Lund University has over 40,000 students (though many live in other places). We have just learned that the University offers an online Masters in GIS, free of charge. (How can this be??) We will investigate further.
Other interesting sights near Lund included the new western harbor area in Malmo, Vastra Hamnen, and another new “model development”, Jakriborg. My collage is from Google Earth, including the 3D rendering of Santiago Calitrava’s twisting torso. One surprise after the next.
Update 17/6/2018: The Lund University masters program has a few scholarships for a free online international GIS Masters program, but the normal price is currently 10,000 euros.
