AbstractThe aim of this paper is to examine the key issues about the development of cotton textile industry of Songjiangfu in the lower Yangzi Delta of China during the late sixteenth century. The analysis is based on the MingSongJiang Geographic Information System (MSJGIS), a thematic historical GIS. Spatial statistical methods such as hotspot analysis and GWR are used to explore the spatial patterns of cotton textile industry and examine the relationships between economic development and population, religion, education, transportation and so on. In addition to revealing the complex structures of cotton textile industry in Songjiangfu, this paper promotes an explicitly spatial view that has methodological implications for historical research.
