China launched Gaofen-11 remote sensing satellite, as part of the Earth observation project

China on Tuesday launched Gaofen-11, an optical remote sensing satellite, as part of the country’s high-resolution Earth observation project.

The Gaofen-11 satellite was launched on a Long March 4B rocket at 11 a.m. Beijing Time from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in northern Shanxi Province. It was the 282nd flight mission by a Long March carrier rocket, reports BSS.

The satellite can be used for land survey, urban planning, road network design, agriculture, and disaster relief. Its data will also be used for the Belt and Road Initiative. Since the Gaofen project began in 2010, China has gained an increasingly clearer view of the planet.
