Resource nameAcademia Sinica Center for Digital Cultures—Reading Digital Atlas

The website Reading Digital Atlas has archived nearly 300 historical maps of the Ming and Qing Dynasties; these are precious and rare collections located in the Library of Congress and the British Library. With just one simple click, the exquisite details and stories of the maps can be revealed and appreciated. In addition to map analyses elaborated by National Palace Museum’s researcher, Tian-Ren Lin, some of the information is offered in connection with the Library of Congress’ database and provided in English for consultation and reading. The map catalogues, Reading Imperial Cartography: Ming-Qing Historical Maps in the Library of Congress and Reading Antique Cartography: Historical Chinese Maps in the British Library, published by the Center in 2013 and 2015 respectively, can serve as a basis for comparison.
