CHINESE CLANS

The Chinese Clans webpage demonstrates interactive online maps of locations and historical relocation of Singapore clan associations. The first map shows the spatial temporal change of clan associations. The last four maps show the spatial clusters of the Singapore clan associations with heatmaps. From the maps, it is observed that Chinese clan associations are spread along with urban sprawl. Before 1960s, only two clusters are observed, but the third cluster has been observed in Gaylang (the easternmost cluster) since 1960s.
