Western S&M Project was organized by National S&M Bureau, it's about 1:50000 topographic mapping project in blank area of western part. Within the five years (year 2006-2010),the 1:50000 topographic mapping and database building task in blank area of western part was finished with modern high S&M technology, providing reliable, timely and basic geographic information service for society.

In western Nanjiang desert, Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and Hengduan mountainous area, as the limitation of climate, environment, transportation conditions and old S&M equipment, there're no 1:50000 topographic maps in about two million square kilometers territory, 1:50000 topographic mapsblank area was left. The blank area involved Sichuan, Yunnan, Xizang, Gansu, Qinghai, Xinjiang etc. provinces, which occupies 21% of the territorial area, the quantity of 1:50000 topographic maps is 5,032.

In year 2007, the technical scheme and accurancy test passed the acceptance inspection of State Surveying & Mapping Bureau, the Bureau purchased 128 sets of MapMatrix, distributed to equip Surveying & Mapping Bureau in Beijing, Qinghai, Shanxi, Gansu, Sichuan etc. effectively supported the smooth carrying out of western mapping project.
