Atlas interactif en ligne de la Région Autonome Ouïgoure du Xinjiang de Chine

Abstract : The Makan Map project consists of the development of an online interactive atlas of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China. The region covers an area of 1,664,897 km², or 16% of China's territory. This new online mapping tool allows publishing geographic, administrative and socio-economic baseline data for this region. It is also the first multi-language atlas of Xinjiang. The Makan Map has been developed in four languages: Uighur, Chinese, French and English, so that it is accessible not only to local people, but also via the Internet to a much wider audience, virtually unlimited, from all around the world. It has all the potential to become a reference product in terms of production of online atlas to the Xinjiang region and beyond. Its implementation is part of the research objectives of the UMR8586 PRODIG CNRS to develop new observation and modeling methods of geographic and socio-economic data. This project works with the general trend of development of online mapping in France and in the world. The current version is the first version of Makan Map. In the coming years, it will be enriched with new features, including thematic maps of the region.
