  • .Survey Data Analysis with China and US Geo-Explorers
  • This presentation will discuss the following topics: 1. Exploring local amenity data (environmental data) with China Geo-Explorer 2. Integrating survey data with local amenity data for spatial analysis 3. Mapping survey data with Geo-Explorers 4. Comparative analysis with China and US Geo-Explorers 5. Future directions
  • .Spatial Study of Crime and Society with Census, Business and GIS data
  • This talk will be focused on the spatial study of crime and society by introducing spatial theory, methodology, technology, data and online tools for understanding the social dynamics of our ecosystem. It will discuss a general framework for spatial crime based on the ecological systems theory. It will introduce some newly developed spatial data explorers (Spatial Explorer of Crime, Spatial Explorer of Religion, China Geo-Explorer, and US Geo-Explorer), distributed by the University of Michigan China Data Center. It will demonstrate how space-time data of different formats and sources from Census, business, and Internet data can be integrated, visualized, analyzed and reported in a web based system for the spatial study of crime and society.
  • .Getting Old Before Getting Rich: Changes and Challenges in China
  • This talk will be focused on the spatial study of aging issues in China by introducing spatial theory, methodology, technology, data and online tools for understanding the aging issues in China. It will discuss a general framework for spatial China based on the ecological systems theory. It will discuss the changes and challenges China is facing with the rapidly declining population growth. An introduction will be given to spatial data explorers (China Geo-Explorer, and US Geo-Explorer) distributed by the University of Michigan China Data Center for aging studies. It will demonstrate how space-time data of different formats and sources from the government statistics, Census, Internet data and social media data can be integrated, visualized, analyzed and reported in a web based system for the spatial study of aging China.
  • .Understanding the Changing Religious Landscape of China
  • China has experienced significant changes in its socioeconomic and religious landscape within last 30 years. To understand the future development of China, it is important to understand its religious landscape changes in past and future, which has been a fundamental component 0f human development. This presentation demonstrates how the spatial explorer of religion can facilitate the spatial study of religion and society, especially for the following questions: How the religious landscape of China will look like in 20, 50 or 100 years? What impacts of religious structures on regional landscape? What impact of urbanization on religious landscape? Is there a crowding out effect between different religions? What impact of international investments and trade on religious landscape? What are the spatial patterns and trends of different religious denominations? How the religious development interacts with other socioeconomic development?
  • .New Development of Spatial Explorer of Religion
  • This presentation gives an update on the progress of the spatial religion project, including an online spatial information platform for spatial analysis of religion. It discussed the information structure, methodology, and technology and demonstrated how space-time data of different formats and sources can be integrated, visualized, and reported in a web based system for religious studies. It also presented several case studies for the spatial study of religion and society and discussed some future directions.
  • .Spatial Studies of Religion
  • This presentation gives a report on the updated development of the spatial explorer of religion and related studies.
  • .Spatial Explorer of Religions and Society
  • Scholars, policy makers, and journalists are requesting comprehensive information about the geographic locations, religious services, and socio-economic environments of Chinese religions. As an effort to promote international collaborations on spatial studies of Chinese religions and society, a spatial information network for the studies of Christianity in China has been established by a group of scholars from several institutions in the U.S. and China. The objectives of the project include: (1) to establish a centralized information infrastructure; (2) to provide effective tools and technical support for interested users through spatial intelligence information technology; (3) to create an online research forum designed to promote information sharing and improve understanding of Christianity in China; and (4) to render comprehensive information about teaching, learning, and training on the studies of Chinese Christianity. This paper will present some preliminary results from the project, including an online spatial information platform, which will integrate data, methodology and research references for the studies of Chinese Christianity. The system allows easy access to comprehensive demographic, economic, and religious information in China as well as some online tools for spatial data analysis. It will demonstrate how space-time data of different formats and sources can be integrated, visualized, and reported in a web based system for religious studies. Some case studies and future directions will be discussed.
  • .An Introduction to China Geo-Explorer
  • China Geo-Explorer is a web based system for spatial data service, which combines data from statistics, Census, and geographic maps into one integrated system. It provides rich, unique and authoritative information with powerful functions for spatial studies of China.

  • .Introduction to China Data Center
  • The China Data Center at the University of Michigan is an international Center designed to advance the study and understanding of China. A primary goal of the Center is the integration of historical, social and natural science data in a geographic information system, where spatial and temporal references are maintained through a relational database. This will facilitate comparative and interdisciplinary uses of the data, enable both non-specialists and China scholars to understand and utilize these data, and enhance knowledge of China. Its missions include: to support research in the human and natural components of local, regional and global change; to promote quantitative research on China studies; to promote collaborative research in spatial studies; and to promote the use and sharing of China data in teaching and research.
