The “Map of Officials’ Career Paths from a Pass List of Imperial Examinations” is based on the “small golden placard” of a court examination held in the twenty-seventh year of the reign of Daoguang Emperor in the Qing (1847), currently housed in the Institute of History and Philology, Academia Sinica (no. 037046). This Map has tabulated the historical traces of the 231 jinshi found on the placard, and by using a GIS and Web Map Tile Service, presents us the picture of officialdom in the mid- to late Qing period.
