Geological map of Greenland.
General geological map of the ice-free areas of all of Greenland, with lithostratigraphical and chronostratigraphical divisions. Offshore geology of the shelf and sea floor shown based on geophysical interpretation. Surface and subsurface contours are depicted on the Inland Ice, together with contours of the ice-thickness.

Regional geological maps.
This 14 map series of the ice-free land areas of Greenland shows the distribution of rock types, orogenic belts, and lithostratigraphical and chronostratigraphical relationships. Thirteen sheets are published, with one sheet (No 6) in an advanced state of compilation. Most sheets are also available in CD-rom editions.

Geological maps of North and Northeast Greenland
Topographic maps of North and Northeast Greenland
The maps covers an area from 80°N on Greenland's Northwest coast extending eastwards to the northernmost point of Greenland and south to 70°N on the east coast; this comprises roughly half of Greenland's ice-free land area.

Detailed geological maps.
The 1:100 000 map sheets are the most detailed standard map sheets available, and depict both rock types and Quaternary deposits. A total of 56 sheets have been published, mainly covering areas in western Greenland. A block of 16 sheets covers the Scoresby Sund region of East Greenland, and there are four sheets in North Greenland.
