    Thanks for the link.
    The guys did a good job, the maps shown are much better than almost everything else I got into my hands before. To be honest, there is only one map even better, which is our own map.
    Though I could get several items from this maps which were even new to me. Thanks again.
    Nevertheless the maps contain some errors as well. Ditches considered to be walls, recent military work rather than old and sometimes even irrigation canals.

    I think I should contact these guys, maybe they proceeded in their work and even covered walls of the lacking somewhat 20 wall building dynasties ...

      Yes it's pretty interesting. Assuming they haven't done any field work it's fairly comprehensive for Beijing (the only area I know well).

      Our map shows quite a bit more, but we've had the advantage of boots on the ground. It'd be interesting to know if they're still working on their maps.

          Well, it's just bricks & mortar, so I'm not surprised...
