GNSS: BeiDou declared operational world-wide

On 27 December 2018, authorities in Beijing declared the BeiDou Global Navigation Satellite System operational.

The image above shows satellite coverage in most of the Asia-Pacific adequate for position finding with accuracy of 5 metres horizontal and 5 metres vertical or better.

Coverage in the Americas is of lower quality, with much of the Americas only seeing 6 to 8 satellites. That is supposedly enough for positional accuracy of 10 metres horizontal and 10 vertical.

See the media release at: APPLICATIONS-Transport

The China Satellite Navigation Office has reports on BeiDou performance and comparable data on Russia's GloNaSS and USA's GPS at:
