Background of Estonian and Latvian heritage culture objects databases

Inventory is conducted with the help of Estonia-Latvia programme in the frame of "Unknown heritage culture values in common natural and cultural space" project. Project lead partner is State Forest Management Centre, cross-border cooperation partners are State Forest Service and NPA North Vidzeme Biosphere Reserve Administration from Latvia. During the project, the heritage culture of Võru and Valga counties in Estonia was mapped in 2009, and in 2010, the same was done in Põlva and Tartu counties; in Latvia, the regions of Valka, Limbaži, Valmiera and Alūksne were mapped. In Estonia, 9100 new heritage culture objects were added to the database developed with the support of the co-operation programme. Information on more than 17,000 heritage culture objects can be found in the Latvian database.
