Penghu House Georeferences 澎湖房子的基本空間資訊

This dataset contains a very limited set of spatial references for about 1.100 houses of the Penghu Archipelago. Some islands like Niayu, Hujing, Tongpan or Huayu are extensively covered, meaning that the samples might make up 80 or 90% of the local populations. On other islands or in other communities, houses are sampled mainly as a side-effect of other sampling activities, such as sampling Shigandang or Five Generals. The most important attributes in this data set specify the location, orientation smf altitude of a house, as well as the distance from the center of the village or the distance to the nearest coast-line. These data might be useful for studies of fengshui, disaster prevention and cultural adaptations to climatic conditions. The architecture of the house, it's time of erection or the style are not covered in this dataset and might be added in later versions. Most covered ommunities are:
