We are very excited to announce that the first QGreenland v1.0.1 public release is now available! You can find all the details at

QGreenland was inspired by Quantarctica and funded through NSF EarthCube. QGreenland is a free, open source GIS data package and data-viewing tool for Greenland. The package works with QGIS, which is also free and open source ( download package comes with a complete User Guide, so even folks who have never used QGIS will be guided through working with QGreenland.

Since this is just the first release of QGreenland, there’s more development to come. We are very excited to hear from users on what you want, like, dislike, and how you are using QGreenland for science, education, or anything else.
