Asiaq is Greenland’s mapping authority and center for geographical information. Geodata is absolutely fundamental in public administration and area planning, for underground utility cable registration, construction planning, emergency services, tourism and in many research contexts.
Asiaq collects, quality assures, analyses, processes and disseminates maps, geodata and geographic information about Greenland, for users in Greenland and abroad.
Asiaq’s main contribution to the geographical infrastructure is the technical base maps of cities and towns. In non-urban areas, we provide maps for public authorities, companies, and others requiring specialised maps. For the mapping of new areas, data is collected by drone, aerial photos and satellites, supplemented with ground surveys.
Asiaq can help you with expert advice and guidance on all aspects of maps, geographic data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
