Abstract: The cognitive process of human beings on the earth is long while at an accelerated speed. The differentiation and intersection of diciplines take place at multiple levels. Unified geo-graphy has been attacked time and again. Nevertheless, its reasonable kernel, geographical Co-mpleh (integrity), does actually exist. This viewpoint has been confirmed by the fact that map and remote sensing act as information carrier. The concept of geo-system reflects the progress of modern science and technology and the needs of society. The geo-information system has pro-vided a modern high technological means for geography to develop its advantages of regiona-lity and integrity.

Key words: Geographical Complex (integrity), Geo-system, Geo-information system, Map carrier, Remote sensing information
