The Sound of Denmark

A citizen science project mapping the Danish soundscapes.

Media and background material in Danish.

The sound of Denmark is an ambitious citizen science project, launched by CMEC, which for the first time will map the Danish sound environment. It is an unexplored country, and we hope, with the help of everyone interested, to build a database and a detailed sound map, the first of its kind in the world. With the assistance of artificial intelligence, participants will identify sound sources and in particular uncover the balance between man-made sounds and nature sounds.

The project can be followed in Danish at and
