A public certified mining surveyor prepares the maps, which, subsequent to being signed by the surveyor, become officially recognized documents. The computer-aided information-system KARISDAT®, developed by SOCON, is at hand for carrying out the mine surveying work efficiently and in a way to meet future requirements.
KARISDAT® is based on AutoCAD® and is approved by the mining authorities for generating the required maps. Here we have a high performance system whose areas of application far exceed just the compilation and management of the legally prescribed maps.
Developed with an eye to the future is the KARISDAT-SUB module, which allows a prediction of ground movement expected to occur above cavern fields. Parameters that are needed, such as the limit angle and the specific cavern convergence, can be extracted from the KARISDAT® database. Besides subsidence, it is possible to predict ground movement aspects such as tilting, curvature, horizontal displacement as well as compression and strain.
