Currently, Geography Faculty students at universities in general and University of Education – The University of Da Nang in particular are faced with difficulties in constructing a topographic transect on the hard map (analog map) for the purpose of learning and doing researching. The method in use at present is the traditional handicraft method which consumes a lot of effort but brings back very limited quality. To improve this situation, we can use the features of the Adobe Photoshop software and computer support to create good transects as expected, which ensure content accuracy and engineering sophistication; helping students to do their homework, practise transectbuilding, and at the same time making them excited, positive and creative in their learning. This method includes nine basic steps with 18 simple technical operations.
