Software Development for Calculating Overlapping Mineral Resources
The overlapping mineral resources are always occupied by the various buildings and cannot be exploited anymore, so to determine their boundaries correctly is an important task for both local government and constructers. Based on “regulations about exploiting overlapping coal and keeping coal pillar for buildings, waters, railways and major tunnels”, the software is developed to calculate the overlapping mineral resources. Four main design steps about the software are illustrated, the main dialogue box of the software is introduced, which is composed of three part boxes. In the end Chaochuan industry square is selected as an example, variables are calculated by the software, and the protected boundaries are drawn in MapGis.
