I have been working in Mongolia since 2009 as a GIS specialist. Below are a few tools that might be useful to others working here. These are solutions to issues that I encountered when I started work:
TOOLS, STANDARDS, AND TUTORIALS:
1) Tutorial for using Mongolian text in ArcView (4.7mb-zip)
2) Tutorial for modeling and mapping local precipitation(1.4mb-zip)
3) Map projection standards optimized for Mongolia (12kb-zip)
4) GPS settings and operation in Mongolia
Currently, I am creating a master copy of public data for Mongolia (to distribute to local government and nonprofits). I am collecting data files for proprietary and free mapping programs. If you are interested in contributing to this project, please contact me.
If you are looking for GIS contacts in Mongolia working on NGO projects and public data, please contact me directly. I will gladly point you in the direction of local experts.
