Abstract: The China Administrative Regions GIS Data: 1:1M, County Level, 1990 is composed of boundary files covering the administrative regions of China. The data are at a scale of one to one million (1:1M) for national, provincial, regional, and county levels. The temporal coverage represents the status of China as of 31 December 1990. These files are organized by national and individual province levels. The national level covers all of the administrative regions of China, which includes two files: pbd90, and tbd90. The pbd90 file contains China national and provincial boundary data in ARC/INFOŽ export format, and tbd90 contains national, provincial, regional, and county boundaries data in ARC/INFOŽ export format. The data at the province level separate administrative regions into individual provinces and autonomous regions. The county boundaries of 31 provinces and regions are identified in 31 files. Both national-level and provincial-level data include information on geographical locations, areas, provincial names, county names, local names (in PinYin), and codes for each administrative division. The China Administrative Regions GIS Data: 1:1M, County Level, 1990 may be linked to any attribute dataset related to China administrative regions at the provincial, regional, and county levels on 31 December 1990, such as China economic statistics data, China environment statistics data, and other related statistics data of the P. R. China. The datasets may also be integrated with and overlayed on any China GIS data at the 1:1M scale such as fundamental GIS data and land use GIS data.
