Digital mapping for Yangtze to complete by year end

28 October 2009
The Yangtze Waterway Bureau has finished compiling digital maps of the entire Yangtze River, according to the director of its waterway division Wan Dabing. Work started in 2008 on the upper and lower reaches. By mid October, the remaining 2,000km or so of waterway in the middle reaches had been digitally mapped. Once the ongoing quality control process is completed, digital mapping will be available for use on vessels.

Digital mapping is an important part of the ambitious Digital Waterway programme, itself a key element in the modernisation of the Yangtze. Vessels equipped with the digital mapping system will be able to download the latest data of the waterway, including water levels, water depths, hazards, port and terminal locations, bridges and mooring areas. The initiative is designed to improve the efficiency and safety of shipping on the Yangtze.
