China quake prompts call for back-up copies of urban files-Xinhua

The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development has urged cities across the country to keep extra copies of local urban planning files in other localities to preserve data against emergencies and disasters.

In the devastating May 12 earthquake in southwest China, such files in many regions, including Wenchuan, Beichuan and Pingwu, were either buried, destroyed or severely damaged.
