Topographic mapping and spatial analysis

Surveying and mapping of the non-urban areas of Greenland is, in most areas, outdated, inaccurate and with a low degree of detail. Asiaq works with a range of remote sensing methods and the latest satellite data to update and increase the degree of detail, thus improving the existing data base.
