Description: Virtual Wuhan starts with Virtual Hankou and the main focus is on the foreign settlements. Virtual Hankou will cover a large period from the mid-nineteenth century to nowadays. In Hankou, five settlements were established: British, Russian, French, German and Japanese. They covered an area of 2.2 km². One of the first angle of research will be to focus on these foreign settlements and to compare their situation in different cities.
