The 1700s is a period of reconstruction in the Øresund Region. It is also the age of Enlightenment, when efforts to surveying natural and social conditions and creating rational improvements within the economy and social conditions were given pride of place. The will to reforms was great and the enlightened despotic states were sympathetic to new initiatives.

The Swedish scientist Linné made his Scanian journey in 1749 documenting the condition of parts of the Øresund Region and recommending what should be done about it.
