Visualizing Chinese

5000 Years History

This is a new information system visualizing twenty-four ancient Chinese dynasties. By analyzing over 800 emperors and 200 scholars' historical contributions in politics, philosophy, arts, science and technology, the book visually presents the relationships among those realms. Inspired by traditional Chinese art, the middle landscape painting is an artistic visualization based on the real history data, which represents the history in an authentic and expressive way.
