Modern cartography makes great achievements on application and theories in 90s. Standardized and multi resource data, interactivity, dynamism and real time, hypermedia, network are its main features in this age. Under the support of new technology, integrated Cartographic Information System (CIS) has been put forward. Several such systems have been built all over the world. So modern cartographers are facing an opportunity and challenge. They must not only continue making maps, but also use and improve CIS. The Institute of Geography, Chinese Academy of Sciences,imported INTERGRAPH system for printing atlas and developed EA World for electronic atlas. The exchanging interface was also developed to combine them as an integrated CIS. Many national atlases including electronic version and printed version have been finished by this system sucessfully. This paper concludes the structure, functions,producing flow and craft and characteristics of CIS through INTERGRAPH system and EA World system.
