New version of Yangtze digital map goes on public trial

9 October 2013
The third version of the Yangtze digital map went on a public trial from 1 October, according to the Yangtze River Administration under the Ministry of Transport, marking a milestone in the modernisation of the river.

The latest version has added new user applications and shipping data. Among them, for example, the velocity of currents, both in the main shipping channel and the nearby slow flow section, can be displayed on the user’s terminal to allow vessel operators to take advantage of currents and minimise fuel consumption. Also, real-time fog alerts in mountainous areas and visibility information can be pre-set to help shipping operators avoid collision.

Digital mapping is part of a decade-long government modernisation programme to build the ‘Yangtze digital waterway’ that is designed to make shipping safer. Previous versions have undergone internal trials for fine tuning. This is the first time the application has gone public.
