PGC maintains a list of external (non-PGC) polar GIS data resources.

Overview

PGC does not directly publish many polar GIS datasets. However, there are many GIS resources available.

The list below is non-exhaustive, but is a curated list of repositories and datasets that PGC uses and recommends. PGC does not provide support for using any of these datasets.

If you are a polar GIS data provider and would like to add your data to this list, we would love to add you! Just send us a message with details.
