In this project, the information of the sites and bronze nao are plotted on the map. The content of the tables includes the following:
The map in the project page shows all the available information in the database.
The database is available for downloading in the following formats:
Please go to the relevant dataset web page for downloading.
The data table in pdf which contains all the information provides the data for users in studying the sites and nao. It can be used as an overall view of the data collected.
The shapefile can be directly imported to GIS software for further analysis by researchers and users. Users can refer to the user guide of various GIS software on importing shapefile for display and to perform analysis.
Note: the shapefiles were created by ArcMap 10.3.1.
* Since the Chinese Government has their own coordinate system (GCJ-02), users should note that if you choose a map for basemap, you should use the shapefile with GCJ-02; if you choose the satellite image as basemap, then use the shapefile with WGS-84.
For kml format of the database, simply open your Google Map / Google Earth and import the corresponding kmz file. Then all the points will be displayed on the map and when you click on the points, information of the sites will be pop-up.
Using Google Map:
Note: Google Maps and Google Earth has adopted different coordinate systems: Google Maps uses the Chinese Government (GCJ-02) system for map of China, while for Google Earth they are using WGS-84, the coordinate system commonly used in the world.
