Ongoing transformation of coal industry taking place in Silesian Voivodeship lead to increasing number of characteristic objects and post-industrial areas. Most of them are degraded and vacant even if they own resources of measurable natural or socio-economic value. Therefore effective scheme of their revitalisation is a high priority target for regional authorities and society.
Multidimensional approach to the analysis of post-mining areas requires ensuring proper scope and quality of data, integrating various areas of knowledge and information. An example of complex approach is an information platform based on analytical and expert modules the OPI-TPP system, which is a tool to support decision-making processes on the future use of post-industrial areas.
OPI-TPP based on Geographical Information System is an integrated tool dedicated for environmental impact assessment and provides measures that are necessary for regional and local stakeholders and reinforces decision making process.
This paper describes the methodology of post-mining area assessment in environmental impact aspect and exemplary applications with the use of the platform. The main functional relations of the system were presented, allowing to use the available range of data and analysis modules for the purpose of supporting environmental impact assessment for post-mining areas management in the Silesia Voivodeship.
