China launched its own navigation system

The Portal CGTN reports that China's largest national system of satellite navigation and positioning started its work on Saturday, may 27.

Deputy Director General of the National Agency of cartography and geoinformation of China Li, Weisen explained that the new navigation system will include 2700 satellites, 30 regional and one main data center.

According to him, such a network can provide dense coverage and quality will be superior to other analogues. For the implementation of their plans, the National mapping Agency signed a partnership agreement with the developers of the Chinese company BeiDou, which has been creating software for satellite navigation, centred on China.

Also, Vasan noted that the new system will be used not only ordinary users but also large companies. It can be useful for more effective monitoring of movement of city public transport and in other spheres.
