To improve environmental governance and ecological restoration and promote the construction of an ecological civilization,the Third Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China proposed to compile a natural resources asset balance sheet and execute off-office auditing of leader implement natural resources assets. Here we preliminarily combed data supporting the main methods of international natural resources and environmental accounting,analyzed data requirements and source circumstances when China compiles the natural resources asset balance sheet. We propose a natural resources asset balance sheet compilation combining natural resources science and spatial information technology. On this basis,combining research from Huzhou in Zhejiang province (one of the first demonstration areas of ecology civilization construction)we deal the owned scientific data with integration,index integration and quality diagnostics. We generate the bottom data set according to basic database standards of natural resources asset balance sheets for the focal area,including natural resources and environmental profit and loss elements. We adopted methods such as multi-source remote sensing data fusion,human elements,spatialization updating the database dynamically,building natural resources asset balance sheet compilation,and an applied basic database that is standardized,normalized and high-precision in space-time.

Key words: natural resources accounting, natural resources asset balance sheet, data integration, database construction, information services
