"The DGSD is a MySQL database that records the 3,828 units that
existed at any time in the administrative hierarchy of China's Song
(960-1276 CE); along with attributes such as population,
civil and military ranks, and locations of centers of state industry.
All of the entities are spatially referenced, and all events of
spatial change (establishment, abolition, promotion, and demotion of
jurisdictions) are recorded and abolition, promotion, and demotion of
jurisdictions) are recorded and temporally referenced. The database,
and shapefiles derived from it, are freely available for download and

"In 1958, Sinologist Hope Wright published a work entitled An
Alphabetical List of Geographical Names in Sung China. Originally
published in Paris by the Centre de Recherches Historiques of the
Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, and reprinted as a
second-generation photocopy in 1992 by the Journal of Song-Yuan
the Alphabetical List is now out of print.
Wright's compilation is the most comprehensive print source for Song
geography in any language. The Digital Gazetteer of Song Dynasty
China (DGSD) is a MySQL database derived primarily from the
Alphabetical List.
The Alphabetical List is an index to every jurisdiction in the Song
(960-1276) spatial administrative hierarchy named in one or more of
the following three Song texts: the Song History (Song shi) Geography
Monograph, the 980 Records of the Universal Realm in the Taiping Era
(Taiping huanyu ji), and the 1085 Treatise on the Nine Territories in
the Yuanfeng Reign (Yuanfeng jiuyu zhi)."
