Organizers of the new QGreenland project invite community input on the development of a free geographic information system (GIS) mapping tool that will support interdisciplinary Greenland-focused research, teaching, decision making, and collaboration. The new tool will combine key datasets into a unified, all-in-one GIS analysis and visualization environment for offline and online use. Learn more about QGreenland here: https://qgreenland.org/.

Twila Moon, research scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), is principal investigator on the project. She will lead the creation of the GIS data package for the tool in collaboration with a team at NSIDC and the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, as well as an international editorial board, which will help to identify and curate the data. Moon hopes QGreenland will inspire Arctic-wide resources of this nature.

QGreenland is modeled from the Norwegian Polar Institute’s Quantarctica, and will work on QGIS software. It will contain interdisciplinary data that researchers, educators, resource managers and communities can use to access information about Greenland’s ocean, land, ice sheet, biology, and communities. In addition to accessing and downloading all-in-one data, users can add to and conduct analyses on the data. Learn more about Quantarctica here: https://quantarctica.npolar.no/.

QGreenland is funded by the National Science Foundation’s EarthCube program. Version 1 is expected to be released in late fall 2020.
