Mapping Fo Guang Shan
Charting a global Buddhist movement
Thursday, October 29th
RSVP to receive the Zoom link!
Please join us for the launch of our latest project—a set of interactive maps that feature Fo Guang Shan (FGS). These maps, powered by ArcGIS®, provide an up-to-date, comprehensive resource for researchers interested in the study of FGS as a global Buddhist movement. One can view the full range of FGS temples and affiliated organizations, track the development and spread of the organization, and get a glimpse into the origin stories of particular temples.
At the launch, we will introduce these resources, discuss our methodology for developing the maps; and also demonstrate how these maps can be used in conjunction with other layers to create a robust research tool.
