The Regional Geological Mapping (RGMAP) System developed by China Geological Survey Bureau is a GIS system for digital geological mapping, which has made a great change to traditional geological survey. RGMAP is composed of two parts: Digital Route System and Digital Section System. Each of them contains two subsystems, namely, the Palm-PC-Based Field Data Capture System and the In-house Desktop System. We discuss mainly the Digital Section System in this paper. In the field, we have achieved the section measuring digitally in computer by means of using the Palm-PC-Based Field Data Capture System. The Digital Section System (In-house Desktop Subsystem) can automatically calculate the thickness bed by bed, as well as create the Measured Section Chart and Columnar Chart, which has dramatically enhanced the measurement of geological section and its cartographical techniques.
