Geographically, Hedmark is in the traditional sense dividit in the follaein auries: Hedemarken, east o Mjøsa, Østerdalen, north of Elverum, an Glåmdalen, south of Elverum. Hedmark an Oppland are the anerlie Norse coonties wi nae coastline. Hedmark hostit some o the 1994 Winter Olympic Gemmes an aw.
