Three Japanese citizens have been fined 40,000 yuan (about 5,260 U.S. dollars) for illegal surveying activities in Shanghai and east China''''s Jiangxi Province, the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping (SBSM) announced on Tuesday.

A Japanese staffer with the Beijing agency of Japan-based Aisin AW Co. carried out GPS software tests in major avenues in Shanghai in March this year.

According to the SBSM, they had not obtained approval to carry out such mapping activities and their action violated Chinese law.

He was fined 20,000 yuan and the SBSM confiscated the survey equipment and results.

Also in March, two Japanese citizens conducted illegal mapping and surveying activities in Nanfeng, Yingtan, Shangrao and Qianshan in east China''''s Jiangxi Province under the guise of archeological research.

Noting that the survey targets included key military facilities and communications hubs, the SBSM imposed a fine of 20,000 yuan and confiscated the survey equipment and results.
