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 Higher Education Fund of Macau SAR Government, the Hulsewé Wazniewski Foundation, and the Special Collections at Leiden University Libraries, UBL. We are most greatful to our team of student crew: Fan Xiaoyu 范曉鈺, Henriëtte Hofman, Huang Qiuru 黃秋如, Lei Tianyue 雷天月, Sou Ka In 蘇家賢, Wang Rui 王睿, Wang Zhe王喆, Zhang Xinyu 張鑫宇 and Zheng Botong 鄭博通.
