Zhujiang New Town Automated People Mover System APM line of the Guangzhou Metro in Zhujiang New Town

Zhujiang New Town Automated People Mover System, or APM line, is an automated people mover (APM) system mainly serving the Zhujiang New Town area in Guangzhou, the new CBD of the city. It is an underground and automatic operating system. In terms of construction cost per kilometre, it is the most expensive people mover system in the world, yet it is the shortest and least used line in the Guangzhou Metro network. The whole line began service before the Asian Games on 8 November 2010 with the exception of Haixinsha and Canton Tower. This was due to the two stations being located close to the opening and closing ceremony venue.

Geographic coordinate system Coordinate system

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.
