China’s Aerospace Science and Technology Corp. released sample images from the Gaofen-2 satellite, which launched in August 2014. Gaoefen-2 is China’s highest resolution satellite to date, capable of producing 1-meter resolution color imagery.

The satellite joins Gaofen-1, which launched earlier this year, and will work in concert to capture images to monitor infrastructure projects, survey mineral resources, monitor agriculture, aid in disaster relief and assist with other tasks. The Gaofen series is expected to include seven satellites by 2020.
