Abstract. With the rapid development of computer technology and Geographic Information System (GIS), geospatial data are commonly stored and managed in the geospatial database. And geospatial data are widely used in government decision-making, environmental protection, scientific research, and national defence construction. The frequency of geospatial database updating is getting higher and higher due to economic and social development. In this paper, dynamic updating method of geospatial database with the incremental data is proposed, which means only changed features are updated into the geospatial database. Features that have not changed are not updated. This method can greatly improve the efficiency of database update. It has been applied into dynamic updating of national fundamental geographic information database of China. This database has been updated and published once a year. The current situation of data is improved continuously. It can provide more reliable data guarantee for national economic construction and social development. In the future, there will be further optimization of the dynamic updating method. We also hope more and more geospatial database can be updated by this method.
