QGreenland Beta Package

Community input is critical for creating a valuable, usable QGreenland tool. We've created this QGreenland beta package 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/latest. Also sign up for the newsletter to be sure to stay up to date on future resources.
  • 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.
