By statistical analysis of apatite fission track(AFT)data from west Upper Yangtze area，a regional macroscopic image is established for Cenozoic tectonic activities and the temporal?spatial correlation is preliminarily constructed between regional Cenozoic tectonic activities and intra?continental deformation. It reveals that Cenozoic tectonic activities in time are composed of two significant phases，about 61 to 43 Ma and about since 24 Ma. It means an important turning point at about 24 Ma and Cenozoic tectonic activities in west Upper Yangtze area are significantly enhanced since then. Cenozoic tectonic activities in space are roughly separated as the south and the north segmentations by Anxian County. The pattern in segmentations shows that tectonic activities and regional uplift?exhumation are strong in south but weak in north and strong in west but weak in east. The Cenozoic activities are dominated in the southern segmentation，with strongly tectonic uplifting and reworking. But the northern segmentation is hosted by Cretaceous uplift?exhumation，with denudating and weakly tectonic reworking in Cenozoic time. Cenozoic tectonic activities are controlled by the eastward propagation of Tibetan Plateau uplift. For exploration，the trap and accumulation conditions of oil and gas in west Upper Yangtze area are constrained to a certain degree by Cenozoic tectonic activities.
