Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Quantarctica is a collection of Antarctic geographical datasets for research, education, operations and environment management that works on free GIS software QGIS. To respond to the strong desire of the community and to take the full benefits of rapidly growing knowledge base in Antarctica and Southern Ocean, Norwegian Polar Institute is currently developing a plan to make a major update to Quantarctica version 4. We would like to start this process with a community survey to hear about datasets, data categories, and functions you want to see in QA4. We need your feedback by the end of November. The survey takes 5-10 minutes.
