Abstract:

Boundary Data of the Tibetan Plateau (2021 Version) is the updated version based on the Datasets of the boundary and area of the Tibetan Plateau published in June 2014. The updated version has changed as follows: (1) the boundary of the Tibetan Plateau has been extended to cover the region of southern slope of the Himalaya, Hindu Kush and the Pamir Plateau, which covers the area of part of China, India, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan. The area of the plateau is 308.34x104 km², an increase of 54.11x104 km² compared to that of the 2014 Version; (2) the attribute data of each section of the plateau boundary, were added; and (3) the reference datasets such as ASTER GDEM, Google Earth Images were used in the new version. The dataset is archived in .shp and .kmz data formats, and consists of 44 files with 1.07 MB (compressed to 5 files, 773 KB).
