The Knowledge Base GRIND is the University of Bergen's portal for communicating knowledge about the landscape and environment, collected from researchers at the University of Bergen and from the academic community including the Bjerkness Centre for Climate Research, the Institute of Marine Research, environmental management agencies and the museums of western Norway.

The basis for GRIND is the two reference books about Hordaland: the Cultural History Road Guide (1993) and the Natural History Road Guide (2004). The books represent an innovation in how to disseminate knowledge in a comprehensive format, from researchers in the academic community, through informative theme-articles combined with natural historical and cultural-geographical presentations of the landscape and localities in the municipalities. The articles on the cultural and natural history are enhanced by an abundance of high-quality graphics, historical pictures and maps.
