La Tibetan Youth Association in Europe solicita incluir el Tíbet en Google Maps

ZURICH y DHARAMSALA, India, February 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Con motivo del centenario de la proclamación de independencia del Tíbet, la Tibetan Youth Association in Europe (TYAE) se dirige a Google con una petición urgente: los sitios tibetanos en Google Maps deberían etiquetarse en escritura tibetana. Para detener el proceso de desaparición de la herencia cultural tibetana, la   TYAE lanzará el foro de campaña  http://www.tibetonthemap.com. La campaña está siendo respaldada por la actriz de Hollywood Yangzom Brauen y las asociaciones tibetanas de todo el mundo.

Google Maps es el servicio de mapa online más importante del mundo. Por tanto, la TYAE pide a Google adoptar oficialmente la escritura tibetana para los mapas junto con los nombres de sitios en inglés y chino. De este modo, Google puede asegurar la conservación de la herencia cultural tibetana en la esfera digital. Con "Put Tibet Back on the Map", la TYAE ofrecerá un foro para el diálogo. Cada visitante puede apoyar la campaña y ayudar a completar el mapa.

Yangzom Brauen: "Una trágica pérdida para nosotros"

La actriz de Hollywood Yangzom Brauen, que tiene raíces tibetanas, lamenta la desaparición de la herencia cultural tibetana y apoya las peticiones de la TYAE: "Nuestro idioma, nuestra escritura y nuestra cultura están desapareciendo progresivamente. Una triste pérdida para nosotros y para la cultura budista."

Petición urgente a Google

Ya hay más de 600 sitios tibetanos marcados en http://www.tibetonthemap.com. Los miembros de la TYAE han etiquetado los primeros sitios en tibetano, siempre con el objetivo en mente: Google debería poner los nombres de sitios tibetanos en los mapas. "No hay mapas precisos en Internet que estén marcados en tibetano. Google debería cambiar esto. Las escrituras china, cirílica y arábica ya se utilizan en Google Maps. ¿ Por qué no tibetano?", preguntó Tenzin Kelden Losinger-Namling, director general de la TYAE.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
