Tibet Autonomous Region, enterprise, three industries, spatial and temporal distribution,2010-2020


Spatial and temporal changes of regional enterprise distribution pattern reflect the structure and level of local industrial and economic development. By the data mining methodology and using the enterprise information at the National Enterprise Credit Information Public Display System (, Tian-yan-cha ( and Qi-cha-cha (, the dataset of spatio-temporal changes of enterprises in Tibet Autonomous Region (2010-2020) was developed. This dataset is consisted of the information on enterprises in the primary industry, the secondary industry and the tertiary industry of Tibet during 2010-2020. The results of this dataset show that the number of enterprises in the three industries in Tibet multiplied and their business scope expanded from 2010 to 2020, and the temporal and spatial distribution of enterprises in the three industries tended to evolve over time with Lhasa and Shigatse as the first-level core, Nyingtri and Lhoka as the secondary centers, and a belt-like distribution along the Yarlung Tsangpo River valley. The dataset is archived in .shp formats, and consists of 73 data files with data size of 2.16 GB (Compressed to one file with 30.0 MB).
