While researching my upcoming Mongolia trip, I was amazed to discover a treasure trove of Mongolian data already at Rutgers. Christopher Free, a quantitative ecologist, studies Mongolian fisheries, and is an R and GIS expert to boot. He has compiled a one-stop archive for Mongolian GIS data and R courses that use Mongolian fish data as examples [much better than sports statistics!].
These are exactly the kinds of global connections I am delighted to make!
