The Tibetan Plateau has long been regarded as one of the most isolated regions on Earth. Due to globalization and recent influxes of tourism, this once untouched landscape has now been subject to significant physical and cultural changes. This map aims to depict various cultural changes in the Tibetan landscape using data collected from 2000-2019 through the Humboldt State China/Tibet Field Study Program. With the exception of a 5 year period, professor Anthony Rossi has taken students to this region every summer, to conduct meaningful field research in a rapidly changing landscape. This poster is in relation to a larger ongoing project to help catalog the fourteen years of data into a comprehensive atlas on the region.
