Qomolangma surveying conducted
The Chinese team tasked with remeasuring Mount Qomolangma successfully arrived at the summit and conducted a series of surveys on the pinnacle of the planet on Wednesday.
The surveyors used a global navigation satellite system receiver, a gravimeter, snow-depth radar and a meteorological measuring instrument to determine the height of Qomolangma.
Innovations applied in the latest survey include the application of the Beidou-3 Navigation Satellite System, domestic surveying equipment, the airborne gravimeter and 3D interactive virtual reality.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the first successful expedition to Qomolangma from the Tibet side and the 45th anniversary of China's first accurate measurement of Qomolangma's height.
