Errors and inefficiency may be caused by manual processing of complex templates for the preparation and management of engineering survey reports. To address this problem, this paper analyzes the multidimensional variable features of professional field documents and proposes a generation model of standardized reports based on a four-dimensional dynamic template. This approach splits the standardized report into multiple parts to construct a hierarchical tree that represents the report structure according to the report rules, then stores the tree in a graph database, and finally generates the desired report dynamically by retrieving the relational tree for the template and obtaining the relevant data. The model has been applied to the engineering geological survey report system and is shown to improve the working efficiency and data accuracy of the report preparation. Results indicate that the model is feasible and effective. View Full-Text
