Maps of Kinmen

Due to its proximity to mainland China, for successive Chinese dynasties, Kinmen's importance lay in its highly strategic location: Kinmen maps were drawn as far back as the Ming dynasty. In the Great Age of Sail, European merchant fleets began to include Kinmen on their nautical charts. Although these old maps do not accurately describe Kinmen, one can still understand its importance for sea routes in their time. Nowadays, with advances in technology, accurate maps can easily be drawn with cartographic software. Kinmen's topography can now be clearly presented to the world.
