The coverage map was created in Google Maps and is meant to illustrate the geographic range of villages included in the dataset. In some cases, the latitude/longitude coordinates printed in the village gazetteer may vary slightly compared to the village’s position as shown in Google Maps. In other cases, the village’s name may have changed in the time since the gazetteer was printed, often due to revision of administrative subdivisions. For example, what was once a village (村, cun) may have been elevated to the status of town (镇, zhen ). For village names that do not appear in Google Maps, a marker is placed within the county to offer a location estimate. PittCat library catalog links are provided for each gazetteer. This map is for reference only and should be cross-checked against other source.
