Qing Imperial Cartography

The aim of QingMaps is to create an interactive map analysis and research visualization tool for students and researchers. Three large atlases are now online and fully searchable. Raw materials were taken with permission from Wang Qianjin 汪前进 & Liu Ruofang 刘若芳, 清廷三大實測全圖集, 3 Vols., Beijing: Waiwen chubanshe, 2007. QingMaps is evolving—in the project’s next phase, we are working to connect QingMaps to a number of existing platforms and to curricula at Leiden University and the University of Macau.


Generous financial support came from the University of Macau, the Faculty of Humanities at Leiden University, the Fund for Higher Education of the Macau SAR, the Hulsewé Wazniewski Foundation, and the Special Collections at Leiden University Libraries, UBL.
