Ok, I hate to bump this thread, but you seem like you know a lot about this topic.

1. It appears that there is some areas that are not developed yet south of Qinngorput on Google Maps. Is there anything known about this area?
2. Are there any wealthy areas?
3. Is the population growing? Will Nuuk ever become a fairly large city?

Sorry again for bumping this thread

The population of Greenland is only 56,000. So even if it is growing, there won't be any large cities for a very long time. But according to http://www.stat.gl population will decline slightly over the next few decades. Fertility rates are declining and out-migration is substantial.

You bumped it, and your questions have nothing to do with roads.

Founded in 1773, it is home to a campus of the University of Copenhagen. The population is about 900 inhabitants. During winter Air Greenland operates winter-only air services from Qeqertarsuaq Heliport to Ilulissat, Qasigiannguit, and Aasiaat. During summer and autumn, when the waters of Disko Bay are navigable, communication between settlements is by sea only, serviced by Diskoline. The ferry links Qeqertarsuaq with Ilulissat, Aasiaat, Qasigiannguit, and Kitsissuarsuit.

Wow, that's amazing! To look out your window and see icebergs floating by. It would be cool to have a summer home there.

There is also a large network of sheep farm roads in southern Greenland. They are mainly around Narsarsuaq and Qassiarsuk Most of them can be found on Google Maps.
