BEIJING - China's first high-resolution remote sensing satellite ZY-1-02C has carried out orbit tests, and images delivered from it reach international levels, China Center for Resources Satellite Data and Application said Wednesday.

The ZY-1-02C, which was launched on December 22 last year, is the first customized land resources satellite for Chinese clients, the center said.

With two high-resolution color cameras and one multi-spectral camera, the satellite will provide clients with images for disaster relief services, agriculture development, environmental monitoring and other applications.
