Recently, QR codes can be found on the doorplates of many buildings in Changsha. By scanning each QR code, people can get detailed address information. The Changsha Municipal people's Government announced on July 29 that it will promote standard QR-coded doorplates across the city, so as to achieve information-based intelligent urban management.

"At present, Changsha has installed 150,000 QR-coded doorplates in its streets and lanes. The installation of nearly 5.8 million such doorplates is expected to be completed by the end of this year,” said Changsha Security Bureau's Population and Exit-entry Management Detachment Leader Liu Hui. By scanning the QR code, people can call the police, get the exact location information, and report problems of public facilities.
The QR codes on the doorplates not only tell the exact locations, but also give introductions to scenic spots, historical sites, celebrities’ former residences, famous streets, and ancient towns. They were also connected to a number of government affairs service apps, including "Changsha Release" [长沙发布], "96111 Convenience Service Bridge" [96111便民服务桥], and "Changsha Gardener"[星城园丁]. This initiative will make it easy for tourists to learn about Changsha’s history and culture, and for locals to have matters handled.
