Soil erosion by water is a serious problem all over the world. In China, about 1790000 km2 of land suffers from water erosion, which accounts for 18.3% of China’s total area. Based on RS and GIS methods, this paper taking Miyun County as the study area, with 2011 rainfall data, Landsat TM images, ASTER GDEM digital elevation data, soil type and other information for the data source. Using USLE model assess Miyun County soil erosion in 2011, analysis of spatial distribution characteristics of soil erosion in Miyun County, as well as quantitative study of the relationship between the intensity of soil erosion and slope. The results showed that, more than half of the area is under a mired erosion, soil erosion is more serious condition in Miyun County. The investigation indicated that it is the characteristic of terrain, soil type, and climate of Miyun County is easy to form soil erosion. The useful recommendations on sustainable ecological restoration plan were provided to solve this issue.
