The article presents the organization of a system for monitoring the use of land in coal mining on the example of the Kemerovo region-Kuzbass, both by state control bodies and by subsoil users. The analysis of soil changes as a result of the activities of coal mining enterprises, which are the leaders of environmental pollution in the region, providing more than 60% of solid, liquid and gaseous waste, is presented. In order to visualize destructive processes, maps of coal mines and their boundaries are presented, which reflect the effects of coal mining both on the lands involved in the production process and on those located nearby. It is noted that the relevance of the monitoring topic is associated with the presence of 4 thousand hectares of land disturbed as a result of mining. The most difficult situation is in the spent and especially acute – in closed coal plants, where there is virtually no monitoring by subsoil users, only monitoring is carried out by controlling state bodies that are unable to cover the entire territory. The results of the lack of monitoring are the necessary costs to eliminate damage from the consequences of the excavation of industrial sites, which only in the Kemerovo Municipal District for 2023 amounted to 8 million rubles. In order to change the situation, it is proposed to monitor using UAVs both for visual inspection and to determine the characteristics of sites, their changes by building monitoring maps. The following accounting parameters of monitoring are proposed: boundary changes, changes in the purpose of economic use, pollution, waterlogging, mine water outlet to the surface, sinkholes, subsidence, deformation. In order to comprehensively present the topics of digital development of land monitoring, further directions of development are presented, including software tools for creating digital maps, economic assessment of implementation, development of instructions for responding to the results of land degradation.
