Land desertification is one of the greatest disasters in the world because of its wide-range influence, long duration, and enormous loss. The desertification early-warning system is very important to decrease the disaster occurrence and the reduction of disaster loss. The grid accumulation desertification early-warning model can provide this. Therefore, Land Desertification Early-warning System of Xinjiang (LDES_XJ) was built in Browser/Server (B/S) structure based on the grid accumulation land desertification early-warning model. The functions include the publishing of land desertification warning information sub-system, the desertification data management, the map browsing and query have been realized in the LDES_XJ. The system is a fundamental platform for the land desertification prevention and control as well as a convenient communication platform for the government, which makes it more convenient for relevant people to obtain the desertification early-warning information and also plays an important role in the desertification prevention and control in Xinjiang, China.
