"форель" or trout, shows as the name of the village Hemsedal in Norway.



  • Hi everybody:

    I've notice the village where i live, Hemsedal in Noway, has a russian name on the map "форель".
    It made me very curious.
    Is there some russian fly-fisher in the team of developers?

  • Thanks for the answer, very good and extense. Also showed me another open good tool, that openstreet .Thank you.

    Let me in gratitude tell you my story, briefly.

    Buen rollo, no disputes or political disscusion.

    Is lots of good trout here in Hemsedal and i use Windy (of course) to check if is going to be a good fishing day and.....
    BOOM
    The name of the villige was changed to «trout»!!, written in russian, the rest of the map normal english. how funny!! IT should be a perfect catch day.

    I might raise the issue in that forum perhaps but i just found IT funny and have no especial interest in change it, is a fun codename for Hemsedal.

    Greetings keep the good work
