The National Archive has received a 15 million kroner grant from the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation to create a digital atlas of Denmark, tracking data from the 1600s.

Trade publication Ingeniøren reports that the joint project, which includes the archives, the National Survey and Cadastre, and the University of Copenhagen, will map historical Danish data to provide a detailed tool for researchers.

The three-year project will create an internet-based GIS (geographic information system) map that will include a database of cultural, historical and geographical information.
