Arctic GIS | Welcome and Introduction

Welcome to the Arctic GIS Web Site

The arctic research community is leading efforts to demonstrate and improve the application of geospatial data and tools to arctic research, logistics, and education through a wide variety of collaborations, projects and initiatives.

The purpose of this website is to encourage and catalyze further discussion and planning on arctic Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Geospatial Information Infrastructure (GII) efforts by providing information and a forum for discussion to the international arctic research community.

This web site includes:

  • information from meetings convened to discuss Arctic GII
  • annotated lists of websites relevant to Arctic GII
  • news and events

Please feel free to make comments and suggestions regarding this developing website by sending your comments to Helen Wiggins.
