No title appears on this map; the title applied here is based on content. No scale or legend is given; orientation is marked along the borders on all four sides with north at the top. The map mainly covers Zhenhai County in Ningbo Prefecture. Dinghai County changed its name to Zhenhai in the 26th year of Kangxi’s reign, 1687. The map depicts land distribution and land use at all levels. The map shows county-owned and private-owned intertidal mudflats, wetlands, farmlands, and salt-making fields. The slat-making fields, wetlands and county-owned intertidal mudflats are everywhere on the map, but the areas of private-owned farmlands are rather small. The map may have been drawn around the 39th year of Qing Qianlong’s reign, 1774, based on the well-known dam projects illustrated on the map.
