Working Group (2018-)

"Tu (圖)" in Local Gazetteers

In classical Chinese, "Tu (圖)" can mean either images, illustrations, or drawings. This working group intends to look at visual representations in Chinese local gazetteers and find better ways to work with these visual materials, given that one can search and tag texts but not illustrations.
