The East Asia Library is pleased to announce that a NEW Chinese database, China Geo-Explorer, is now available to the Yale community. You can access it from here: http://chinadataonline.org/cge/.
China Geo-Explorer is created by China Data Center of the University of Michigan (UMCDC) and the State Key Laboratory for Information Engineering in Surveying, Mapping and Remote Sensing (LIESMARS) of Wuhan University. With this spatial intelligence, you'll be able to make rapid, accurate spatial decisions with greater confidence for regional planning, business investment, population, housing, environmental assessment, public health and many other spatial applications. Data sources in this database includes demographic and business information for all PRC geographies, including 31 Provinces, 345 Prefecture Cities, 2,873 Counties, and over 50,000 Townships.
