The Visualising China online tool
Visualising China is a web-based resource that allows users to explore more than 6000 digitised images of historical photographs of China taken between 1870 and 1950. This tool, aimed at both researchers and more general users, brings information from related collections together with an interface that offers cross-searching and intuitive ways to filter image, video and textual resources according to time and geography.
Users can also visualise the connections between resources in the collection, as well as seeing images in their geographic context.
We also invite and support user contributions. Add general comments or suggest specific new information.
Visualising China was developed with support from JISC. Support for the project currently comes from the British Academy, through its Academy Research Projects scheme, and from the Arts & Humanities Research Council, through an award to the British Inter-university China Centre.
