Why is it important?

The new cartographic data will contribute to supporting Greenland’s infrastructure management as well as its economic development.

Precise and detailed maps are also important in connection with climate and environmental monitoring, rescue preparedness and business development.

Project highlights:

Procurement of satellite imagery and Digital Elevation Models covering 85.000 sqkm of Greenland

Facilitating topographic mapping of a large and remote area with high accuracy and without risks or need for mobilization

Independent advice and experienced support selecting the right satellite-based solution for the project purpose, based on close to 20 years of experience

The Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency (SDFE) has produced a short video presenting their new 3D-panorama service, based on our data.

In more detail..

Since 2015, DHI GRAS has supported the Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency (SDFE), in close cooperation with Greenland’s Government, in their mission to provide updated topographic maps of the ice-free areas of Greenland. The current topographic maps of Greenland are outdated and due to the large size of the country, it is not the easiest to map.

Together with our close partners at Airbus Defence and Space we have provided ready-to-use orthomosaics and detailed Digital Elevation Models (DEM) for an area covering 85.000 sqkm of Greenland.

The satellite data products were produced based on dedicated image acquisitions of up-to-date stereo satellite imagery from the SPOT 6 and 7 satellites.

Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency:

They provide high-quality data to the public and private sectors, enabling them to make important community decisions on the best possible basis.

They are a workplace that spans widely and is part of the Energy, Supply and Climate Ministry.
