Geospatial technology in landslide mitigation - A case study in Nilgiris District

Landslides constitute one of the major natural catastrophes, which account for considerable loss of life and damage to communication routes, human settlements, agricultural and forestland. Most of the terrain in mountainous areas have been subjected to slope failures under the influence of variety of terrain factors and figured by events such as extreme rainfall or earthquake. In India, landslides are occurring frequently in Himalayan region in North and Western Ghats in South.

Bréifne Area Landslides Susceptibility Mapping

The aims of this project were to identify and map landslide occurences in the Bréifne area in norwth-west Ireland; to proue a landslide susceptibility map using GIS; and to test a first approach for a methodology for systematic landslide mapping for the whole of Ireland. The methodology used to derive the final susceibility maps was compiled from several literature examples (Santacana et a l. 2003, Tangestani 2003, Morton et al. 2003).

Radar remote sensing for surveying and monitoring of earthquakes and mass movements in Southern Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is landlocked mountainous nation of around five million people, which borders China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The total area of high mountainous terrain, alpine meadows and pastures exceeds 70% of the Republic’s territory, whereas the greater part of the Kyrgyz Republic is occupied by the Tien-Shan mountains. Kyrgyzstan is a highly active seismic region and has been shaken by numerous significant earthquakes as a consequence of the ongoing collision between the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates.

Semi-automatic recognition and mapping of rainfall induced shallow landslides using optical satellite images

We present a method for the semi-automatic recognition and mapping of recent rainfall induced shallow landslides. The method exploits VHR panchromatic and HR multispectral satellite images, and was tested in a 9.4 km2 area in Sicily, Italy, where on 1 October 2009 a high intensity rainfall event caused shallow landslides, soil erosion, and inundation.
