Tibet will intensify its efforts to crack down on illegal surveying and mapping in 2010, according to the regional Bureau of Surveying and Mapping.

Meanwhile, it will tighten supervision over the illegal collection of geographic information related to military affairs under the signboard of travels, exploration and scientific surveys.

A leading official of the bureau noted that similar cases in other parts of China in recent years have sounded the alarm for Tibet. In 2007, a foreigner collected 54 sets of coordinates with GPS (global position system) instrument in an inland province without China's government approval, in violation of the Chinese Surveying and Mapping Law.
