The spatial database of a geographic information system (GIS) can be used as the technical platform to establish a geological heritage database. The data include a digitised gallery and a corresponding attribute database. The digitised gallery includes point, line and surface graphics representing the locations of geological relics. The content of the attribute database is consistent with the geological heritage registration form (see “ Geological Heritage Register”).
