ABSTRACT
One of the essential activities of mine surveying in Romania is to establish the location and boundaries of mining perimeters, which do not have visible physical boundaries. This activity requires an efficient use of cartographic and geodesic knowledge. In many countries, the lack of cover of topographical maps and/or the lack of geodesic networks, has led to inaccurate positioning of mining perimeters and has created frequent conflicts between the owners of mining licenses. Nowadays, available modern technologies, including satellite images, GPS and the GIS tools can help and make up for those shortcomings. When facing the problems of establishing the geometry of mining perimeters, we can use the GIS, which is a tech tool used for drawing maps, because the official document that is being used in every country for the positioning of mining perimeters is the official map set up by the system of cartographic projections used nationwide (or an equivalent entity).
