Geographic Information System & Mapping with Tsering Shawa

Interview with Tsering Wangyal Shawa, Geographic Information System (GIS) and Map Librarian & Lecturer at Princeton University, NJ. Shawa said that GIS is a study field which has real good prospect for future careers as well as potential for a wide range of interesting and useful services. Shawa suggests that students should study Maths and other related subjects like Geography, Geology, and Ecology while in High School and College. He also asks young Tibetans, who are interested in this field, to make sure to complete their courses and participate in activities such as meetings and seminars to further their education.
