This article is related to a series of Geolocation challenges posted on Hacktoria. This article is specific for Geolocation 1.

The challenge is about the given image and the goal is to find the name of the island where the image is taken.

The screenshot of the challenge is given below:

 First try to find clues on a given image of geolocation.

There are multiple clues which can help in identification of this location. First the picture appears to be taken from an Island. There are many boats in the harbor. Second is that there is car parking also available. Third, there is a cycling track. Fourth the flag of Finland is visible which nearly confirms that this island belongs to Finland. Fifth there is something written on the board “LARUN KYMPPI”. Last the damaged board of the parking sign.

Let’s try to solve this challenge.

Let’s translate the text “LARUM KYMPPI”.

Unfortunately this text does not give any helpful information, so I searched on Google this keyword and there was third result on which location of this event mentioned.

Next step is to go to “Google Maps” to search about “Meripuistotie” location.

Switch to Street View in “Google Maps” to explore this place more effectively.

This poll is similar to the poll in the given picture. Let’s try to find that parking sign to make sure about this place.

Here is the damaged parking sign. So it is confirmed that this place is Meripuistotie. The exact coordinates of this place are 60.157402, 24.8856287.

Here the challenge is completed. Kindly share it if you like. Thank you. See you in the next challenge.
