Digital Map for historic events of China

Beijing, China: National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation published an online 3D digital map. The map shows important historic events for the Communist Party of China (CPC). “This is the first 3D map demonstrating the major historic events of the CPC. The ‘red map’ is a review of the glorious history of the CPC from a new perspective,” said Xu Deming, director of the Administration.
One can visit hsdt.sasmac.cn to browse the map, although it is necessary to download a small programme to use the interactive features. Visitors can see historic figures, sites of major events, high-quality red tourist routes, bases for patriotism education, and significant battles in a visual, spatial and dynamic way.
Tang Xinming, deputy director of the Satellite Application Center of Surveying and Mapping of the administration, said historic figures in the system include revolutionaries of the older generation and heroic models among generalissimos, generals and those who made substantial contributions to the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
Tang said that in the part covering “major events”, visitors can review influential incidents with animated scenes.
