Can I contribute to the geolocation database?  

  • You can use the following page (https://site.uit.no/open-polar/geo/) to search the geolocation database which contains more than 270,000 polar locations.
  • You can contribute to the geolocation database by suggesting a new polar location and/or correct location of an existing one.
  • To suggest a new location, make sure of the following point:
  1. The new location should be a polar location.
  2. The location should be unique. If more than one geographic location (in the polar region) have the same name, you need to provide us with other names that can be used to verify the suggested location.
  3. If the location name matches a name of a person or brand, Open Polar will not accept it.
