We combined the Central Asia Atlas and index of local names made by Sven Hedin to recreate the gazetteer and the map index on the Web. The basic reference is the placename index made by Stein, but we found that the index is not comprehensive, so we are adding placenames which are written on the map but not recorded in the index. In addition, we found that the map of Stein is suffered from various errors, so we use Mappinning to find the actual location of placenames.
