Wikimaps Nordic was a project by Wikimedia Finland with Nordic Wikimedia chapter to work with GLAM* partners on historical maps. What kind of maps can we find in archives across the Nordic countries? What kind of information can we see in them? What can we create together with the public? Together with partners from the other Nordic countries.
* GLAM = Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums
