Self description: "Established in 1999, the Urban China Research Network is
a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional network of scholars conducting
and supporting research on urbanization in contemporary China. A joint
venture between the Lewis Mumford Center and the Center for Social and
Demographic Analysis (CSDA), this Network is a virtual research center
based in Albany, and extended internationally. Its purpose is to strengthen
contacts and collaboration among international scholars with interests in
urban China. [...] The Urban China Research Network is developing an
archive of [digitized] maps of China's major cities. [...] For two cities,
Shanghai and Tianjin, it will also provide a link to downloadable GIS maps
and information at the subdistrict level. We intend to extend this data
archive to all major cities, one at a time, and we welcome offers of
assistance for any city."
