There is an incorrect place name in the map “Nurgan Regional Military Commission” in the seventh volume of The Historical Atlas of China, edited by Tan Qixiang that has not been corrected so far. “The Historical Atlas of China Northeast Region Source Literature Compilation” and “The Historical Atlas of China Notes and Interpretations of Northeast Region Volume” also lack the explanation of the origin and positioning of the “Edala Wei”. Based on literature research, it is concluded that “Edala Wei” should have been “Dalahe Wei”. This analysis and clarification on the mistake of “Edala Wei” could provide a reference for related researches.

Key words: The Historical Atlas of China, Ming Dynasty, Nurgan Regional Military Commission, Nuchen
