It's said that three of them were sons of Prime Celestial Lord, transmigrated themselves into mortal world as leaders of ancient China. Yao established the fundamentals of Chinese astronomy and calendar; Shun formed the basis of agriculture; then Yu relieved people from the thread of flood and created the foundation of hydraulic engineering. So people glorified Yao as the Divinity of Astral, Shun as the Divinity of Earth and Yu as the Divinity of Aqua.
