Upper Daling Region Settlement Dataset
Detailed data are provided for all the collection units in which Zhanguo-Han ceramics were recovered, together with the Zhanguo-Han surface sherd densities in all those collection units. The details of grouping of collection units into local and supra-local communities are also provided.
The basic data map is provided in a vector format and two raster formats.
In vector format, there is an AutoCAD (Release 12) .DXF file called ZGH.DXF. Each collection unit that yielded Zhanguo-Han sherds is indicated by an AutoCAD closed polyline on the layer LOTS (color Magenta) enclosing its complete area. The Zhanguo-Han surface sherd density (sherds per square meter) is attached to the polyine for each collection unit as its z-value (that is, its elevation).

In raster format, cell values are Zhanguo-Han sherd densities (in sherds per square meter). The Idrisi raster layers are in ZGH-IDRISI.ZIP (a compressed file that contains ZGH.RDC and ZGH.RST).

Details of the grouping of collection units into local communities in the published analysis are provided in the form of an AutoCAD (Release 12) .DXF file. This file has a single layer, CLUSTERS (color Magenta), which contains closed polylines encircling the locations of non-contiguous collection units that were grouped together as local communities. Non-contiguous collection units not falling within one of these polyines were each treated as a separate local community. Click here to download the file ZGH-LOCAL.DXF (296 KB).
Details of the grouping of local communities into supra-local communities or districts are provided in the form of an AutoCAD (Release 12) .DXF file. This file has a single layer, DISTRICTS (color Green), which contains closed polylines encircling the locations of local communities that were grouped together as larger communities at the supra-local scale. Local communities not falling within one of these polyines are not considered part of any district in the analysis. Click here to download the file ZGH-DISTRICT.DXF (7 KB).
