In this modern age, data is ubiquitious. It seems to be everywhere but when it comes to Tibet-related datasets, we run out quickly. This site is built to collaborate together to gather Tibet-related datasets for both community building and political advocacy.

When fake news is the norm, we owe it to each other to observe any news through critical lens. This applies to data as well. In addition, most data is not available in the right format and typically, 80% of our time is spent on data wrangling i.e. acquiring and cleaning these data. What better time to start than now?


The datasets and the short analysis done here at meant to be starting points for other more-detailed projects. I see it as an exploration and hope you leave with more questions than answers.
