ABSTRACT
The historic area of Upper Silesia straddles the border between the Czech Republic and Poland and features a high concentration of mining and metallurgical industry. Industrial activity has affected the landscape. The impact is often being eliminated through land reclamation and restoration. The article deals with areas lying at the boundary between the two states; the border is formed by the Olše (Olza) river. This area has been heavily affected by mining and features large subsidences. The most significant subsidence is found on the Czech side at the site of the former village of Louky. The article describes the procedures of reclamation, reclamation solutions, GIS models and 3D models. The article also explains the process of developing an information system, feeding the system with data, visualisation of the final solutions and designing of solution versions. The result is a visualisation model of the subsided areas at Louky, affected by the mining activity at the ČSM Mine.

Keywords: Landscape visualization, GIS, land reclamation, SPOLCZECH, Upper Silesia, landscape affected by mining
