|Comments||This map is available on the web site of the Minhang Municipal Library (上海市閔行圖書館). It is part of a complete set of digitized map on Shanghai from 201BC to 2002AD.
This set of maps shows the transformation of the administrative limits of Shanghai city or municipality within the larger geographical and administrative context of the greater Shanghai area. The various historical maps are pasted over a sublayer representing the present-day Shanghai municipality. Due to the scale of the greater Shanghai area, most of the maps are too crude to be used as cartographic sources. Yet they provide a sense of the division of space by the successive regimes and municipal authorities. |
