Glacier Area Outline (GAO) for western Finnmark from the period 1895-1907. Source:
"Gradteigskart" constructed from land surveys between 1895-1907, three paper maps printed at a scale of 1:100 000 include the five largest ice caps - Normannsjøkelen, Seilandsjøkelen, Øksfjordjøkelen, Svartfjelljøkelen and Langfjordjøkelen. The maps were georeferenced and digitised by NVE. The maps have poorer accuracy compared to N50-maps, and rubber sheeting was needed to do a transformation. The glacier outlines are uncertain and must be taken as a rough estimate due to the poorer quality of these old maps.
