QGreenland Custom


QGreenland Custom is no longer supported. This was an experiment, and we decided to go in a different direction. It shouldn’t be expected to work.

What is QGreenland Custom?

QGreenland is a free and open-source Greenland-focused GIS environment for data analysis and viewing, powered by QGIS. QGreenland is delivered in two ways:

  1. QGreenland Core: a large Zip package containing a core set of data curated to serve the majority of users. This documentation page is about QGreenland Core. QGreenland Core has its own documentation.

  2. QGreenland Custom (beta): a QGIS plugin for downloading a custom set of data, including data which is not part of the QGreenland Core zip package (for example, due to filesize constraints). QGreenland Custom enables you to access only the QGreenland layers you are interested in.
