The Bibliography of Chinese Administrative Geography contains information on approximately 75 published books concerning the administrative geography of China. The data set contains bibliographic information as well as the location of the books; the list of books include manuals on boundary changes, place names, geographic coding at national, provincial, and local levels, and other scholarly works. The database is arranged to permit a search of works on specific times, places, and subject matters.
The bibliography is primarily limited to works on the 1949-1994 period, and is housed at the University of Washington and at the Universities Service Center at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The collection was developed by the University of Washington, USA in June 1996 as part of the CITAS (China in Time and Space) Project funded by CIESIN under the NASA grant NASG-2901 and the Ford Foundation grant No.995-0669.
