Atlas interactif en ligne de la Région Autonome Ouïgoure du Xinjiang de Chine (version 2.0)

Abstract : The Makan Map Project aims to develop an online interactive atlas of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region located in northwestern China. This region covers an area of 1,664,897 km², which represents 16% of the Chinese territory. The current release is the second version of the Makan Map and follows the first one published in 2014. This new edition makes it possible to visualize geographic, administrative and socio-economic baseline data, to carry out statistical analysis and to create thematic maps for this region. It is also the first multi-language atlas of Xinjiang. Indeed, the Makan Map is designed in four languages: Uyghur, Chinese, French and English. It aims to become a reference tool for online atlas publishing for the Xinjiang region and beyond. This project is part of research objectives of the UMR PRODIG laboratory to develop new methods of observation, modeling and cartographic representations of geographical and socio-economic data. Development is ongoing for future releases. Web address:
