Geospatial data is a powerful learning and teaching tool. Using GIS in a secondary or post-secondary classroom has been shown to increase students’ spatial thinking and higher-order learning skills. QGIS is a particularly useful GIS platform for educational use because it is free and open source. Once downloaded, both QGIS and the QGreenland data package run offline whether in classrooms, at home, or in the field.
QGreenland can be used for a wide variety of learning topics, skills, and practices, including: Earth's systems and climate, cryospheric and hydrologic processes, Arctic processes and ecosystems, modeling and using model data, and analyzing and interpreting data.
