This project is a new attempt to combine Tibetan studies and digital humanity by utilizing GIS technology. Tibet is known for its diverse and splendid monastic traditions with a long history, and the primary goal of this project is visualizing the development of Tibetan monasteries from the 9th to 21th centuries. By collecting the information of 2,733 monasteries in Tibet, our work team built a database of Tibetan monasteries and further visualized the development of Tibetan monasteries for 1,200 years as a GIS map with timeline tool. Moreover, our team produced different theme maps of Tibetan monastic cultures, such as the affiliations of monasteries the clusters of livestocks. In addition to visualizing the big data by GIS technology, we analyzed the patterns of Tibetan monasteries and presented our work on Columbia Wikischolars. We strongly hope to participate in "2016 Data Science Day @ CU" in order to have more people access fascinating Tibetan culture through digital humanity.
