Online layers reference
QGreenland can be enriched with layers provided by online services such as Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), and Web Coverage Service (WCS). This document provides a list of potentially useful resources that QGIS can connect to to provide layers via the internet.
See the How to add an online layer to QGIS page for information on how to utilize these resources.
The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) [WMS, WFS, WCS] provides access to a wide variety of datasets.
The Arctic Observing Viewer [WMS, WFS] provides observing sites associated with long-term monitoring activities in the circumarctic.
The Arctic Research Mapping Application [WMS, WFS] provides a variety of reference layers such as Arctic cities and an Arctic base map.
The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) [WMS, WFS] provides various layers including a geological occurrence map. Note that GEUS requests that users of its services provide an email address as part of each request. Results may be limited during peak service hours.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s Global Imagery Browse Service (GIBS) [WMS/WMTS] provides quick access to over 1000 satellite imagery products. For instructions on how to utilize GIBS with QGIS, see the Earthdata Wiki on GIBS
