Introduction

This publication contains a list of place names in Greenland including geographical information about the different places. This material has been collected over many years and our objective is to make it freely available to the public. If this publication is positively received, it will be followed by a number of similar ones. Starting with Greenland, on the “top of the world” is merely a coincidence.

The gazetteer includes geographical names in several categories: the administrative regions, bays and fjords, islands, lakes, mountains, and settlements. Every name is followed by its alternative name(s). The latitudes and longitudes are given, as well as information about the length of the fjords, the area and population of the islands, the area and height above sea level of the lakes, the height of the mountains, and the population of the settlements. All of today’s settlements are listed, from towns, villages to smaller settlements (e.g. sheep stations). In addition, a selection of the names of abandoned settlements is included. For all other categories, the selection includes the most important names.

Most population figures are 1 January 2005 estimates. They are copied with kind permission from Statistics Greenland.

Should you find any inaccuracies in this gazetteer, the compiler would appreciate hearing about them. He may be contacted via email at peivhau@online.no
  

Explanatory notes

Alphabetization
The Danish letters æ, ø, and å, are normally filed as the three last letters in the alphabet. In this gazetteer, however, they are filed as ae, o, and a respectively.

The order of letters throughout each name is followed strictly:

  • Gåsefjord
  • G.B. Schley Fjord
  • Giesecke Isfjord

Coordinates
For area features (e.g. islands, municipalities), the coordinates indicate the approximate centre of the feature.

Municipalities
The municipality name in which a place or feature lies is given, with the exception of features not belonging to any specific municipality. For these features, the district name is given.

Several maps showing the municipality borders can be found on the Web, e.g. at http://www.vdiest.nl/greenland.htm

Symbols

  old (pre-1973) spelling
  + town
  * (in square brackets, combined with year or date): year of foundation on present site (populated places); date of formation (districts and municipalities)
