A sand ridge in Rokua National Park in early winter dusk.

This graticule is located at 64,26. Today's location

This graticule is sparsely populated. Population density in the area is about 2 people per square km. The biggest population centers are Vaala and Utajärvi.

The graticule includes the western parts of lake Oulujärvi, which is the 4th biggest lake of Finland.

Rokua National Park lies within this graticule. The historical road Keisarintie (Emperor's road), which used to be the main road between the cities Oulu and Kajaani, goes through the National Park. (Note: don't attempt to drive through the road with a car with too low suspension. It's bumpy.)

Note that the graticule is distorted due to the proximity of North Pole.
