Analysis of 48 Uyghur cemeteries in Xinjiang indicates that while many were repurposed for the reasons cited by the Chinese government, fully a third were demolished with no further development on the site.
This methodology seeks to build upon previous research efforts and help other researchers understand the outcomes of Chinese policies related to Uyghur communities. Readers can view this analysis using 3rd-party tools such as Google Earth or ESRI systems. Structured data (Excel) is also available for download for 3rd-part enhancements or study.
