The Quantarctica Project at the Norwegian Polar Institute is pleased to offer a Quantarctica User Workshop at EGU2017.

The User Workshop is aimed at beginning and intermediate GIS users and Antarctic researchers interested in learning how to integrate, analyze, and present their own research data with the free, open-source, cross-platform QGIS software. The workshop will guide participants from the first steps in importing scientific data to the production of a scientific figure or map. Though we will be working primarily with the package of Antarctic datasets included in Quantarctica, the GIS skills learned in the workshop are useful for researchers working in any region or scientific discipline.

Participants should install and test the latest version of the Quantarctica package ( on their laptops prior to arriving at the workshop.

The Quantarctica project strongly supports attendance from students and early-career researchers.
