Paper Abstract

Human being has experienced five stages on the mountainous study, in which the form of mountain information presented like a cycle, i.e. starts from data, and changed to information, knowledge, finally returned back to data. Similarly, attribute of mountain information also experienced a cycle of objective information-subjective information-objective information. There is no essential difference between e-mountains and digital mountains. Based on the analyzing of the progression of e-mountains studies in China and abroad, this work proposed three key points to build digital mountains (China): 1) integration and sharing mountain information; 2) methods and models of mountain data mining; 3) visualization and 3-D simulation of mountain surface processes.
