I've been working this last year on producing a large-scale project in and around the historic town of Røros, Norway. The finished website will contain the 99 panoramas I have already assembled, with more coming this year.
With only a population of some 5,000, the town has been an important staging post between central Sweden and the Norwegian coast - particularly Trondheim, as well as the centre for a copper-mining tradition that began in the 16th-century and continued until the 1970s. That its buildings are historic, its slag heaps massive and its industrial heritage impressive caused it to be names a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it attracts millions of visitors every year, not only in the summer, but also in the winter where people get to enjoy the coldest town in Norway - temperatures regularly fall to below -30 degrees.
The town itself will feature in future posts, when I have finished the actual Google Map delivery, but I thought I would share this little tour of the mine, Olavsgruva, which was worked for nearly 400 years.
