BEIJING: China has completed a high-resolution, three-dimensional map of the entire surface of the moon, according to state media.
Quoting Liu Xianlin, an academic at the Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping, the report said the map would help scientists study the features of the moon's surface and deepen understanding of lunar geology and its evolution.
"It is an important stage for the later lunar landing - a selection of the landing site - and to better understand the lunar structure," he said.
