The creation of an authoritative common base geographic information system for Chinese history from 221 BCE to 1911 CE, in collaboration with Fudan University of Shanghai.

The China Historical Geographic Information System (CHGIS) project is creating an authoritative, freely available database and GIS that describes the administrative structures of Chinese history from the formation of the Qin Dynasty (222 BCE) to the end of the Qing Dynasty (1911 CE). The objective of the project is to create an open-ended platform, which can be used as the basis for exploring the successive political systems through more than 2,000 years of Chinese History, and also to provide a means for the digital representation of their locations in the contexts of space and time. In addition, the CHGIS provides a means for statistical datasets (such as population, tax, land-use, or other data) to be added for particular periods and areas of interest, allowing users to store, search, compare and analyze their own data in relationship to numerous other types of data within a single unified geographic framework.
