Abstract: A Cantor system is defined. The geometry of a certain family of Cantor systems is studied. Such a family arises in dynamical systems as hyperbolicity is created. We prove that the bridge geometry of a Cantor system in such a family is uniformly bounded and that the gap geometry is regulated by the size of the leading gap.
