Yangtze digital map poised to start trial

5 September 2012
A trial run of the Yangtze digital map has been scheduled to start on 1 October, a regulatory workshop was told on 30 August. Organised by the Yangtze River Administration under the Ministry of Transport, the workshop gathered officials from the Yangtze Maritime Safety Authorities, the Yangtze Waterway, the Three Gorges Administration of Navigational Affairs, the Yangtze Police and the Yangtze Shipowners’ Association.

The digital map, covering 2,688km of the Yangtze trunkline, will facilitate navigation, help with search and rescue, and give maritime law enforcers real time updating of information and vessel monitoring.

Work on the project started in 2007. One year later, the first section between Nanjing and the Yangtze Mouth, the busiest stretch of the river, had been digitally mapped. By the end of 2009, the entire trunkline was mapped and integrated. Since then, the system has been fine tuned and upgraded.
