Abstract: The computer-assisted geological mapping becomes practical with the advancement in the computer technology. Field observation data can be recorded digitally and systematically using digital·field data acquisition system. The incorporation of GPS technology to the system can help to speed up the field mapping in open areas. The digitally recorded field observation data can be used directly for the geological interpretation in the GIS environment. Geological interpretation can be performed more accurately and efficiently in GIS through effective use of spatial datasets from various disciplines, and the result can be used readily in the compilation of the geological map.

Abstraks: Pemetaan geologi berpanduan komputer dapat dilaksanakan dengan kemajuan dalam teknologi komputer. Data peninjauan kerja lapangan dapat direkod secara digital dan sistematik dengan menggunakan sistem pengambilan data digital. Pergabungan teknologi GPS dalam sistem itu boleh mempercepatkan pemetaan kerja lapangan di tempat yang luas. Data peninjauan itu dapat digunakan secara langsung untuk pentafsiran geologi dalam GIS. Pentafsiran geologi ini boleh dilaksanakan dengan lebih tepat and cekap melalui penggunaan data spatial yang terdapat dari berbagai bidang. Hasil pentafsiran itu boleh digunakan dengan mudah dalam penyusunan peta geologi.
