Which rocket is this launching on? This article says CZ-2D from Jiuquan, but the Chinese Launch Schedule thread has it on a CZ-4B from Taiyuan.

Not sure if this is what you are referring to, but this link:

says CZ-4B from Taiyuan.

This is the first high spectral resolution satellite in the Gaofen series.

.03cm ?   I don't think so.  .03M (30cm)--maybe..
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

Spectral resolution is not the same as spatial resolution. Spatial resolution is in the 20-40m range.

The target orbit is 705km SSO, it should be carried by CZ4C
