The assessment and value accounting of natural resources is important content for environmental governance in rural areas and construction of a beautiful countryside. The exploration of the balance sheet of natural resource asset compilation is one of the primary missions promoting the construction of the ecological civilization in the Third Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Part of China. Research on the exploration and application of the natural resource asset balance sheet system can improve natural resource asset management,transformation of government functions,efficient management,effective supervision of government functions and the scientific evaluation of the quality of economic development. Moreover,this approach covers the shortage of traditional science of natural resources in the integrated management of data,and provides comprehensive,timely,accurate and objective information,services and technical support for urban and rural ecological civilization construction. A standardization and automation system for compiling the natural resource asset balance sheet was designed here based on natural resource science theory,GIS and spatial databases,replicable and extendable. The natural resource assets accounting models and environmental profit and loss accounting models were constructed. We established a natural resources asset balance sheet compilation and update system based on a space-temporal database and compiling pattern of the natural resource balance sheet for Chengde City. The reporting system of natural resource balance sheet can be automatically calculated in two ways,meeting the needs of different users. This method promotes the development of domestic natural resource balance sheet preparation technology,and provides a reference for the promotion of national natural resource asset balance sheets.

Key words: natural resource asset balance sheet, balance sheet compilation and update system, geographic information system, spatial database
