Mining planning has undergone rapid development since PCs appeared on the market, making easy operations previously found complex. A set of programs has been developed, on a high level graphic workstation, to be used in more simple installations, at the pit office, that will allow automatic underground surveying, the use of databases, GIS and engineering calculations with an optimal degree of integration and profit. In 1985 a further step towards integration was taken, integrating processed information such as: (i) coal database; (ii) geostatistics; (iii) overpressures under old workings; (iv) roadway support evaluation based on dip, seam thickness, rock properties; (v) surface subsidence; (vi) network calculations (ventilation, power, compressed air). The final product of this project will connect in the immediate future with an automatic surveying process at the pit office, so giving a full service.
