People's Daily reported today that China's first civilian stereo mapping satellite ZY-3 will be launched at the end of the year.
In the new satellite, the variation of terrain, landform, the earth's surface and the surface features, and the western 1:50000 primary scale topographic maps should be revamped continuously. The satellite ZY-3 will contribute to the improvement of the update speed, condition and accuracy.
