GIS

Mining cartography (mine plans systems) Thematic plans, for instance dealing with:

  • Real estate
  • Water/gas/power supply
  • Sewage systems
  • Ground contamination

The mine plans system forms the basis for mine planning and extraction of many minerals. Minerals and mine surveyors are in charge of producing and updating this versatile data base. Through geo-information systems developed by minerals and mine surveyors, plans and technical information are compiled by means of computers.

By blending plans and technical data, thematic plans and maps can be produced. For instance, planning and carrying out of construction works is supported essentially through the pipeline cadastral plan.
