  <dc:description>MCGD_Rep is a sample of spatial data for China in the first half of twentieth century (1900-1949). The data was extracted from the MCGD Main Dataset. It is based mostly on the list of xian (county) seats in 1931 [Source: Zang, Lihe  臧励龢, ed. Zhongguo gujin diming da cidian 中国古今地名大辞典. Shanghai 上海: Commercial Press, 1931], with the addition of some external data [Source: Crow Newspaper Directories]. By and large, it presents a list of the major locations in China between 1900 and 1949. It contains 1,977 entries with the following variables: name in Chinese, name in pinyin; name of the province in Chinese and in pinyin; latitude and longitude, and Name ID and Location ID.</dc:description>
