Why:The contest is organized and led by Wikimedia Denmark and OpenStreetMap Denmark: We want to try out the power of Open Data to document historic monuments as we believe that it could be a fantastic tool to make important historic information easily accessible as possible! Currently a lot of this information is locked in closed databases.
