Coal fire monitoring by aerospace remote sensing and GIS techniques is an advanced approach, which has been implemented in the Rujigou coalfield, northwest China. A database of several different types of data, including remote sensing images, results of geological surveys, etc., has been collected and assembled in a PC-based information system, which is being developed by the International Institute for Aerospace Survey and Earth Sciences (ITC). This coal fire monitoring and management information system (CoalMan) comprises of two main parts: one is the database with its management tools, and the tools for data processing and analysis form the other. This paper first introduces the structure of the CoalMan information system, presents the data types and contents of CoalMan database, then shows the data management methods. A complex data analysis package is outlined too, as the core of the information system.
