There are actually two tunnels: one in Nuuk and one in Maniitsoq!

Excuse any typos. Let me know if anything is inaccurate or if you have any suggestions to add to this map!

Thank you for sharing your kmz files.

When traveling in Greenland (and all over the world), I use an OpenStreeMap based app. The app I use is Mapsme, but there are other applications based on OpenStreeMap. It can be used offline and in Greenland, OpenStreeMap provides much more details than Google map. Even in the smallest settlements you have the position of the houses, the supermarket, the community house, the church, the heliport, and even sometimes the house's numbers. In google map you barely have the position of the settlements, without anything else.

Thank you very much. You bring up good points. Open Street Map is much better for details on practical traveling information and seems to be much more prefered in Europe and elsewhere.

This map I made is mainly for my curiosities and should definitly not be used for traveling.

You bring up good points though. I'll see if I can add these to OSM in a relatively easy way.

Cheers

Hey everyone,

I'm an amateur Greenlandic enthusiast. I write a lot of the Greenlandic entries for the English language Wiktionary, and have dabbled in learning it on and off for about 10 years. Would love to make some friends, whether native Greenlanders or people who are also interested in learning it...

I have amassed quite a lot of files about Greenland/Greenlandic/other Eskimo-Aleut languages over the years so feel free to DM me if you are looking for something and need help.

So when I'm writing entries for Wiktionary, because I'm not a native speaker, I try to use literature to confirm usage so I make as few mistakes as possible. I've been using a lot or GL/Danish bilingual newspapers, magazines, and websites, and I have the Harry Potter Greenlandic translation as well.

Does anyone know any other literature that is either originally in Greenlandic, or have been translated into Greenlandic? I'm aware of a GL book called Homo Sapienne by Niviaq Korneliussen... The English translation is easy to find but the original GL I just can't find...I'll take an electronic version if I can't get my hands on a hard copy!

Good evening ! My girlfriend is looking at some job opportunities in Nuuk, and we both may end up moving. I, coming from Canada am extremely excited at the possibility. My question is, are there any opportunities for unskilled labourers? I have twelve years in the army, so this wouldn’t be my first job, and I am also not picky! I would be willing to do anything to just live in such a fantastic area.

Thank you in advance !

Hello, I was wondering if there's anyone living in Igtaralivit? Looked at it in the Maps and it's pretty remote. I have a market research project involving multiple cities/towns around the world, and I don't know how/if I should find someone there.
