In the important stage of ecological civilization construction, the ecological restoration of abandoned mines is imminent. Mine geological environment monitoring is the premise of developing mine production, and only comprehensive geological environment data can provide guarantee for mine production. Conventional land resources survey methods have relatively long data cycle and poor accuracy, and can not provide timely, accurate and all-round information. Before the mine ecological restoration, it is necessary to investigate the mine ecological environment, mainly the land use, soil erosion and vegetation coverage of the mine. The application of remote sensing (RS) technology in land survey and dynamic monitoring can grasp the specific situation of land resources in real time, lay a good foundation for land survey and management, and further ensure the timeliness and rationality of land resources. This aricle studies the application of surveying and mapping technology in RS dynamic monitoring of mine geological environment, in order to improve the real-time monitoring of mine, so as to make accurate prediction and minimize the economic losses and casualties in mining areas.
