The modelling and the 3-dimensional management of mines is a necessity for the survival of the mining industry. In order to be able to carry out a planning taking into account reality as much as possible, it is necessary to have many data at one's disposal. Moreover, the spatial representation of the underground is not implemented easily with simple geometrical forms. As the mine working places are in constant evolution, it has to be easy to manipulate the data base. Of the two studied softwares, none is sufficient for an optimal management of a working. Moreover, other data are required for the planning and are to be found on other computer supports. Integration of the various softwares playing a part in the process is necessary. We selected a UNIX work station, allowing the multiprocessing and the multiwindowing. On this work station we installed a personal computer (PC) emulator making the softwares intended for these computers accessible.
