Abstract: A prototype exploration geological information system (EXGID) has been developed to provide a quick and user-friendly means for rapid access, search and retrieval of various geological and exploration information in respect of various mine blocks and coal seams of Jharia coalfield. EXGID consists of three sub-systems (Geological, Mine Exploration Block and Coal Seam), each of which is further segmented into several information categories to provide detail information in respect of the coalfield. Core program of EXGID system has been developed in Visual Basic environment (Version 6.0) and database management part of the system has been developed using Microsoft Access. EXGID system comprises a visual basic executable file (EXGID.exe), two microsoft access datafiles (geostruc.mdb, seamstat.mdb) and a number of BMP files for visualization of location map of various mine exploration blocks of Jharia coalfield. The system provides a facility for rapid search and retrieval of user’s required geological and exploration information ensuring minimum redundancy.
