Future Work
                       Phase 2:
 • Merge 2 databases
 • Create an up-to-date map of mine locations
 • Geo-reference abandoned underground mines
 • Acquire most recent mine maps

  Large flat-bed scanner purchased with NYS DEC funds


                           •Scan existing mine maps
                           •Scanned map images
                                   -digitized
                                 -used in making up-to-date
                           map of mine locations
                           Phase 3:
•Make information available to the public through NYS DEC
website




 These actions need to be taken to ensure the safety of the land,
 homes and people all over New York State! Unless funds become
       available, this project will not be able to continue.
