This paper deals with the application of GISs to support belt conveyor maintenance management. Considering the dispersed, wide-area character of the machinery working in the mine, the peculiar nature of the problem was indicated. The presented survey of the literature on computer-aided mine engineering showed a need for a system dedicated to belt conveyor maintenance management problems. Principal assumptions concerning the system were formulated, an IT platform was selected and data sources were defined. The choice of the GIS environment and the database standard based on MSAccess was dictated by the widespread use of the environments in the mines. It is anticipated that the target system will be a “federation” of subsystems. The universality and open character of the GIS platform opens up prospects for fast data integration.
