BEIJING, May 18 (Xinhua) -- A total of 370 cases involving illegal maps were investigated in 2011 during a national campaign, according to a Friday statement from the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (NASMG).

More than 100,000 maps were confiscated during the campaign, which was co-launched by 13 departments, including the NASMG, the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the Foreign Ministry, the NASMG said.

The NASMG said 41 percent of 338 websites investigated during the campaign were found to be hosting illegal mapping information, adding that 154,000 attempts to upload related confidential information were successfully stopped last year.

The illegal maps are found to show incorrect national boundaries, as well as lack some island territories, the NASMG said.

According to the NASMG, China will extend the campaign to teaching materials travel guides and imported publications, as well as make efforts to boost public awareness of territorial issues.
