《全元文》作者地理分布的可视化呈现 [Mapping the Geographical Distribution of Authors in The Complete Prose of the Yuan] (Xu Yongming, Zhejiang University)

[内容提要]  《全元文》的作者共计3200余人,有籍贯或省级行政区域著录的有1794人。本文对这1794位作者的地理分布进行了数据分析及可视化呈现。从对数据的分析和地图的可视化呈现来看,《全元文》的作者主要分布在元中书省所辖的腹里地区和故宋都城临安(杭州)的周边省县,前者主要集中在山东、河北、山西和河南,后者主要集中在浙江、江西、安徽和江苏。浙江以总数347名位居全国首位。从对《全元文》浙江籍作者的地理分布考察来看,数量从高到低,前六位分别是杭州、宁波、湖州、浦江、永康、平阳这几个市县。《全元文》作者在地图上的可视化呈现,不仅使我们直观明了地看到了《全元文》的地理分布,而且使我们对《全元文》作者地理分布的认识更加清晰化和精确化。

Abstract: There are approximately 3,200 writers represented in The Complete Prose of the Yuan. Among them, 1,794 are identified by their native place. This paper provides a visual presentation of the geographical distribution of these writers. The results of data analyses and map visualization indicate that the majority of authors in The Complete Prose of the Yuan were either from key hinterland areas under the jurisdiction of the Secretariat (Zhongshu sheng) or were natives of provinces around Lin’an (modern Hangzhou), the capital of the Southern Song. Those in the former group are mainly from Shandong, Hebei, Shanxi, and Henan provinces; members of the latter group are concentrated in Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Anhui, and Jiangsu. Zhejiang ranks first with 347 authors. Looking further at Zhejiang authors’ geographical distribution, the top six counties (from highest to lowest) are Hangzhou, Ningbo, Huzhou, Pujiang, Yongkang, and Pingyang. Geographical visualization of The Complete Prose of the Yuan not only provides us with an explicit look at author distribution, but also provides a more accurate view of the collection as a whole.
