ZY-1 02C (short for ZiYuan-1 02C) was launched on December 22, 2011 and it is still operational on orbit. The satellite is equipped with 2 sets of panchromatic CCD cameras (HRC) and 1 set of panchromatic-multispectral camera (PMC). As for the HRC, the resolution is 2.36 m, the combined swath width is 54 km. And for PMC, the panchromatic and multispectral resolution are 5 m and 10 m, and its swath width is 60 km. The data is mainly applied in surveying land resources at 1:25000-1:50000 scale, mining resources, geological environment, quick responses to geological disasters.
