Summary
Abstract: The purpose of this dataset is to give geologists and other scientists a
spatial database of major coal mines and their production in China. This data
set will be utilized in energy research and cartographic projects.

This data set consists of several databases on coal mining activities in China:

The ESRI ArcView shapefiles are the coverages of political boundaries,
counties, provinces, cities, urban areas, airfields, roads, railroads,
electrical power network, river networks, ecoregions, population density,
dental fluorosis prevalence rates, elevated flouride sources, ore deposits, oil
and gas fields, coal-bearing age units, coal fields, coal mine production and
rank, and geology (scale 1:10,000,000).
