Geography

Introduction

The following list includes maps and related geographical information about Tibet.

    The Tibet Map Institute

    URL: http://www.tibetmap.com The Tibet Map Institute's objective is the mapping of the Tibetan area using: (a) toponyms given by travellers, cartographers, etc., and (b) Landsat satellite photos. The aim is to give a picture of Tibet before the establishment of the Chinese Administration (1950). Those maps are also interesting for private travellers due to the precision of geographic details and the number of villages. Presently 32 maps (including more then 5000 place-names) are available from Kyirong Dzong to Pome(between 28 to 31 degree north and 85 to 96 degree east). Each A3+ map covers 1 by 1 degree of long/lat. with a scale of 1:310 000 (33x45cm). Each A4 map covers 1 by 1 degree of long/lat. with a scale of 1:500 000 (21x30cm).
