This paper presents a comprehensive view of mine surveying and proposes standards of how to address this issue. The problem is related to the worn-out system for creating mining mapwork, which no longer meets the requirements of the present age. The aim of the research is to devise and propose a new functional system of standardization of map works (STAMAP) for the needs of the practice and the environment, which is being developed at FBERG. The creation of mine surveying documentation contains information relating to the environment and therefore it is necessary to harmonize the creation of a specific group of spatial information with current European legislation represented by the INSPIRE directive. The new system developed, STAMAP, uses a new classification of map symbols, the CMY (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow) colour scale and systematization of graphic files. The paper also includes practical and functional verification of the usability/functionality of the proposed standards using the example of creating digital mine surveying documentation for the Brestov quarry. The new scientific approach for standardizing map work, the STAMAP system, has up to 50% better results in terms of creating and identifying mine surveying documentation compared to the current situation.
