Under the influence of “Digital Earth”, information technology becomes mature, making the procedure of information processing more systematic and integrated. The application and integration of technology like GIS technology, communications and computer network technology, Database Technology, artificial intelligence and expert system technology will play important impact on content of resource information management. In order to discovery the content of impact, we analyze the present situation of mineral resource management information system (MRMIS), summarize the problem. By comparing and analysis, we know the impact of integrated application of IT involves service target, information processing methods, system structure, system function and service content of system. By this, we forecast developing prospect, expected to provide some referred value for development of mineral resource information management.
