The Chinese are not fooling around when it comes to resources.

China's National Space Administration announced on Sunday that China would launch the third Sino-Brazilian earth resources satellite in September or October.

...The previous sino-brazilian satellites have produced more than one million earth images, 180,000 of which have gone to more than 1,200 Chinese users, ranging from agriculture, forestry to mining, environmental surveillance and other areas.
