The digital shift in geo-environmental monitoring systems leads to a significant increase in the volume of multimodal data from a variety of sources. Their integration is only possible through the creation of dedicated digital platforms that enable the creation of an information space to provide global standards for spatial data processing. Integration of remote and ground-based monitoring methods based on digital mathematical models provides effective processing of large volumes of data, significantly increasing the efficiency of decision-making, as well as a comprehensive assessment of the impact of coal mining enterprise on the condition of natural and man-made environment.
