Kalevankangas- Virtual Cemetery Launched

Kalevankangas is the major cemetery in Tampere. Since 1880 it has been the final place to rest in peace for the citizens of Tampere region. From this spring on the Kalevankangas cemetery can also be viewed through an online map that introduces some cultural, political, econimical and military persons, memorial statues of the cemetary and panorama images from the cemetary.

The site is a co-production of lutheran congregation of Tampere and Aamulehti, the major newspaper in Tampere.

The site is compiled and designed by students of visual design at TAMK School of Art and Media: Kaisa Pennanen, Jaakko Tyhtilä and Samuli Suomalainen.
