This set of data provides a collection of place names in Northeast China. It includes the names of provinces, cities, counties, towns and villages in Northeast China. When we clean up specimens, we often encounter great difficulty determining the location. Many specimens, especially the older ones, have incomplete information when labeling the location, leading to many errors in the digitized information. Therefore, a detailed set of place names containing historical knowledge is necessary when cleaning up specimen records. This data set is an attempt to organize a complete set of geographical names in Northeast China. The current place name collection only includes the current names. In the follow-up update, our goal is to completely sort out the place names and their changes from the beginning of specimen collection 150 years ago. Our data will be collected from the Ministry of Civil Affairs of China, civil affairs departments of local governments at all levels, various atlases, local chronicles and place name research databases.
