Design, planning and management of opencast and underground mining require safety control of mining operations. Geodynamic monitoring of mining areas is necessary for operational forecasting and prevention of dangerous deformation processes. The identification of geodynamic active zones and forecasting of geodynamic risks are based on systematic observations of the surface and mining facilities. A promising method of obtaining timely spatial information to solve the problems mentioned is the satellite radar imagery. The integration of radar products and intelligent information systems improves the efficiency and accuracy of data analysis. The paper presents the methods of radar image processing in order to conduct comprehensive monitoring of the Earth’s surface and infrastructure in mining enterprises. For efficient use of thematic processing products the results were placed on the web server in the information-analytical system “RegionView” providing distributed access to spatial data through the web interface and standard protocols.
