China successfully sent the Gaofen-11 02 - a high resolution Earth observation satellite - into planned orbit via a Long March-4B carrier rocket from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in North China's Shanxi Province on Monday.
The Gaofen-11 02 is an optical remote-sensing satellite that is capable of providing photographs with a resolution of less than a meter.
It will be used for land surveys, urban planning, road network design, agriculture and disaster relief, and support the construction of the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, the Global Times learned from China's space authorities.
The Monday mission also marked the 345th flight of the Long March rocket family.
