HD Remote Sensing Images Cover China's Landmass

Dec 29, 2014

China can now view the entire country's land mass using HD satellite images, it was announced at a national geo-mapping conference held on Friday.

According to a statement issued by the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation, China began capturing remote-sensing images with clear view of objects of a meter in length or smaller since 2012.

By October 2014, such high-resolution images had covered China's entire land territory.

Meanwhile, China's cities are being upgraded to smart cities or digital cities. (Xinhua)
