Kotiseutu tutuksi Google My Maps Map (Know Your Hometown Map with Google My Maps)

The Know Your Hometown Map was created in cooperation between Karvian matkailu ry (Karvia Tourism Association) and Petäjä-opisto (a regional adult education centre).

The map was made as a student assignment for a course called ‘Know Your Hometown’ held in spring 2016. The map shows the attractions of Karvia on a Google Map. You can read introductions (in Finnish) written by the students and watch pictures of the sights by clicking the tags on the map.

The Know Your Hometown Map can be used by computer, tablet, smartphone, or any other device with a working Google Map service.
