The sites of five lighthouses to be built on islands in the Xisha waters have been selected, the Navigation Guarantee Center of the South China Sea said on Thursday.

Navigation services in the waters are currently very basic - there is a shortage of maps of islands and no differential GPS network.

The center said the lack of information created difficulties for ships wishing to anchor over coral reefs.
