QGreenland Beta Package

Community input is critical for creating a valuable, usable QGreenland tool. We've created this QGreenland beta package (v0.18.0) to facilitate developer-user dialogue. 

Download & Explore:

  • Ensure that you have QGIS version 3.10 or later installed on your computer. 
  • Download the QGreenland beta package: qgreenland.apps.nsidc.org/v0.18.0 (download is password protected). The password is available by contacting us. You can also find it in this news alert. Also sign up for the newsletter to be sure to receive similar access information in the future.
  • After downloading, unzip and save the folder in a location of your choice.
  • Open the folder and open the 'qgreenland.qgs' file to open QGreenland. QGIS will open automatically and display the QGreenland data environment. A few data files have already been included in the package. Headings for other suggested data categories also appear, but do not yet include data.
