GIS data at LERBERT

GIS data at LERBERT

Lerbert is a folder at the University network where we have some space for temporary storage.
We have no safety back up at Lerbert, and the files are available for everyone connected to the network.

To find Lerbert you use the network search function. Type Lerbert in the “Search for files and folders”, search the whole network (ad).

We have a folder “WATERWORLD” at \\Lerbert\Kurser\WATERWORLD.
(Last year course is called o-vision.)

GIS data I found at \\Lerbert\Kurser\WATERWORLD\Data\GIS DATA.

We are in contact with the Danish university, KVL, and hopefully we'll soon have information covering the Oresund region.

You can find some maps at the "landskapet som resurs" project.
