China To Build Five GPS Virtual Reference Stations

China has agreed to purchase five new Global Positioning System (GPS) reference stations from Trimble. Additionally, Trimble will install Virtual Reference Station (VRS) software to establish five new infrastructure networks throughout China. The networks will be installed in Shanghai, Wuhan, DongGuan, Tianjin and Beijing. The networks will provide a geo-spatial infrastructure in each area and provide fast and accurate GPS positioning for a variety of applications including surveying, urban planning, urban and rural construction, environmental monitoring, resource and territory management, disaster prevention and relief, precision agriculture, scientific research and transportation management. Trimble had previously installed its VRS networks in Shenzhen and Chengdu.
