Abstract:

Taoyuan tableland, located in the northern part of Taiwan, is well known as the most tank (pond)-dominated area in the world. The purpose of this study is to clarify water resources development in Taoyuan tableland specially focusing to historical significances and contemporary task of irrigation facilities (mainly tanks). With the achievements of previous studies as the foundation, tanks in Taoyuan tableland are reconsidered through the following approaches: 1) utilization of topographic maps from multiple times in history, 2) involvement of urbanization and industrialization, 3) abolishment of tanks and subsequent use of tank sites, and 4) the present condition of the existing tanks and their usage. In addition above approaches, I attempt to use "transfer" and "comparison" between Taiwan and Japan.
