Surface subsidence due to underground mining is a major problem, especially when stratified deposits are completely extracted. Extensively theoretical, laboratory and in situ test investigations have been carried out in many countries to develop mining subsidence prediction techniques. However, to predict subsidence on the large extraction area, complex seam layers, time dependence and three-dimensional (3D) visualization are main difficulties encountered in solving problems. In this research, an integrated system has been developed within GIS for predicting mining subsidence which includes various principal methods to obtain calculation of maximum subsidence, subsidence profiles, and spatial distribution of subsidence with induced large complex underground mining. A case study is presented to demonstrate the capability of the system. As the final result, it is found that the developed system is powerful and effective tool in GIS for complex mining subsidence prediction.
