New license for GrottoCenter

By decision of the Board of Directors of the association Wikicaves dated May 12, 2013, the license of has been changed from CC-BY-NC to CC-BY-SA.

This decision was motivated by our will to:
- Allow a link with other open source projects through the use of compatible licenses
- Encourage users of data from GrottoCenter to share their work under the same license. Thus, the caving data will become gradually more accessible.

If you have added information under copyright in GrottoCenter and if you do not want this information to remain on the site under the new license, please contact us
