In four expeditions to Central Asia, he discovered the Transhimalaya (named the Hedin Mountains after him), the sources of the Brahmaputra, Indus and Sutlej rivers, Lake Lop Nor, as well as remains of cities, burial sites and the Great Wall of China in the deserts of the Tarim Basin. Sven Hedin was the last person to receive Swedish knighthood, raised to the untitled nobility by King Oskar II in 1902. President of the National Academy of Science of Sweden. As such, who will have a prominent part in the selection of the future Nobel prize winners. The conclusion of his life's work was the posthumous publication of his "Central Asia atlas" (Sven Anders Hedin; Nils Peter Ambolt (1966) Atlas de l'Asie centrale , Statens etnografiska museum, Stockholm).

Mes livres vont sans doute bientôt sortir dans de nouvelles éditions [...]" Sven Hedin était un géographe, topographe, explorateur, photographe, écrivain de voyage suédois, illustrateur de ses propres œuvres. Au cours de quatre expéditions en Asie centrale, il a découvert le Transhimalaya (baptisé après lui les monts Hedin), les sources du Brahmapoutre, de l'Indus et du Sutlej, le lac Lop Nor, ainsi que des vestiges de villes, des sites funéraires et la Grande Muraille de Chine dans les déserts du bassin du Tarim. Sven Hedin est la dernière personne à avoir reçu le titre de chevalier suédois, élevé à la noblesse sans titre par le roi Oskar II en 1902. Président de l'Académie nationale des sciences de Suède, il occupait le sixième des 18 postes de membre élu de l'Académie suédoise. A ce poste, il aura un rôle prépondérant dans la sélection des futurs lauréats du prix Nobel. La conclusion de l'œuvre de sa vie fut la publication posthume de son "atlas de l'Asie centrale" (Sven Anders Hedin ; Nils Peter Ambolt (1966) Central Asia Atlas, Statens etnografiska museum, Stockholm).
