The sprout of the map comes from people using pictures to describe the surrounding things and living environment. Maps of China are the largest category of map types for readers from all walks of life. The maps published in different periods have also recorded the changes of territory and have a wide range of influences in society. According to content, form of expression and purpose, it can be roughly divided into national reference maps, provinces, autonomous regions, and city maps (leaflets, atlases, atlases), regional reference maps, and city reference maps (leaflets, atlases, maps) Set) and so on. A total of 213 maps and atlases were exhibited this time, including the "New China Map" published in the 30th year of Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty, maps of the territories of past dynasties, maps of achievements in the construction of the motherland after the founding of New China in 1949, and services for school curriculum teaching. A teaching map compiled in conjunction with the teaching content, a large series map of the Red Guards in the special historical period of the Cultural Revolution, a world map introducing the world, continents, countries, prefectures and cities, as well as evidence of the crimes left over from the Japanese invasion of China, "Great East Asian Communion" Figures, maps, etc.

  When entering the exhibition hall, the first thing that catches your eyes are two huge 9-pin China maps and a world map. In the first part of the exhibition, the second hanging map is "Republic of China Administrative Region Map". The font of the map is traditional Chinese characters. Many place names are different from the current map place names. There is a red font mark near the Penghu Islands: "According to the Allied Headquarters The Ryukyu Islands south of 30 degrees north latitude are instructed to not belong to Japan." The Diaoyu Islands located at 25°40-26° north latitude just cover it. The release of this map is the closest to the time when the Allied forces won the anti-fascist war after World War II and divided the issue of ownership of the seas of China and Japan.

  The maps of Japan’s invasion of China on display in the sixth part of the exhibition all show that Japan was deliberately planning to implement the war of aggression against China. As early as the September 18th Incident, Japanese spy agencies all over China had gone deep into various places to survey China’s natural and natural environment. A large number of specialized maps have been drawn on military deployment, traffic network, resource distribution and other information. These maps are all-encompassing, detailed and accurate to every village and every well, which fully demonstrates Japan’s meticulous preparations for its invasion of China and its vain attempt to occupy China. China's ambitious ambitions to carve up the world.
