Abstract: It is important to study sea level changes in theory and practice. With the rapid progress in remote sensing and computer technology, the development of GIS has been deepening and spreading. More and more practical GIS have been constructed. But little research has been conducted on how to use the technology of GIS which is a useful toolbox for the sea level changes. With the help of advanced GIS’s applied software ARC/INFO, and by using varied data, this report has build up a Sea level Change Geographical Information System and the application model of the sea level changes in Chinese shelf region in Quaternary since 18000 a B.P.. The application model not only resumes and demonstrates the ancient environment of Chinese shelf region in Quaternary but also supplies the fundamental data and analytical service of Chinese sea level changes. All results shall be resumed and demonstrated by using various compute output device.
