Large-scale mountains that affect civilized linguistic exchanges over space offer potentially profound cultural difference landscape implications. This article uses China’s national trunk mountain system as a natural experiment to explore the connection between spatial adjacency of mountains and cultural difference landscapes. Our spatial design documents that the presence of mountains widens the linguistic difference between two cities located on the opposite mountain sides, particularly when they are adjacent to administrative borders. The effect dwindles as spatial contiguity margins between city pairs increases. The results shed light on the importance of conceptualizing geographic contextual constraints to the configuration of cultural difference landscapes.

Projects

Land Parcel in PRD

We visualized the land transaction data in the Pearl River Delta in China, from year 2000 to 2017. There are totally 10,505 land parcels, which cover six cities: Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Foshan, Zhuhai, and Zhongshan.

China House Price Visualization

We adopte Mapbox studio to visualize the housing price in whole main China cities. See: http://jianghao.wang/HousePrice/ for details.

China Bus System

We visualize national wide prefecture-level cities bus system (exclude Taiwai province). There are totally 24,500 bus lines in China in year 2013.

World Climate Data Visualization

WorldClim is a set of global climate layers (climate grids) with a spatial resolution of about 1 square kilometer. The data can be used for mapping and spatial modeling in a GIS or with other computer programs. Here, we want to visualize the WorldClim data to give research a direct reference.
