The Pan-Third Pole covers the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Pamir, Hindu Kush, Iran Plateau, Caucasus and Carpathian Mountains, an area of more than 20 million square kilometers and a population of more than 3 billion.

This Big Data System for Pan-Third Pole is built and maintained by National Tibetan Plateau Data Center of the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences. This system stores, integrates, analyzes, excavates and publishes scientific data over Pan-Third Pole, including more than 1700 data sets, covering geography, atmospheric science, cryospheric science, hydrology, ecology, geology, geophysics, natural resource science, social economy, and other fields. It also gradually develops the functions of online big data analysis and model application. It aims at becoming the most advanced international data sharing platform for the Pan-Third Pole in China.

This system integrates all kinds of data resources at home and abroad, such as Third Pole Environment Database (, Cold and Arid Regions Science Data Center at Lanzhou (, Data Platform for Three Poles Environment (, and High-cold region Observation and Research Network for Land surface process & Environment of China (,and will continuously integrate the scientific data produced by the CAS Strategic Priority A Program of the “Pan-Third Pole Environment Study for a Green Silk Road” and “the Second Tibetan Plateau Scientific Expedition and Research (STEP) program”.

This system is supported by the CAS Strategic Priority Research Programs (A) (Grand NO. XDA20000000, Grand No. XDA19000000)"; also supported by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Informationization Special Program (Grand No. XXH13505).
