Appendix A: Explanatory notes to the DVD

Frands Schjøth, Mette S. Jørgensen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in report


The DVD contains the hitherto most comprehensive, quality controlled, digital geo-data set from the Nuuk Region gathered by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). In agreement with the stated strategy of the Greenland Home Rule Government, the DVD has been compiled with the basic philosophy in mind that quality controlled digital data should be released for general use in order to promote their use in mineral exploration.

The presentation of the data on the DVD follows a standard for sharing of data with the public (see Schjøth & Thorning 1998; Pedersen 1999; Schjøth et al. 2000; Rasmussen et al. 2001; Jensen et al. 2003).

The present document describes the content and use of the DVD. In addition, the acquisition of data for individual views of the ArcView project termed NuukRegion is documented.
