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.

Characterization of Landslide Deformations in Three Gorges Area Using Multiple InSAR Data Stacks

In the areas with steep topography and vulnerable geological condition, landslide deformation monitoring is an important task for risk assessment and management. Differential Synthetic-Aperture Radar interferometry (D-InSAR) and Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PS-InSAR) are two advanced SAR Interferometry techniques for detection, analysis and monitoring of slow moving landslides. The techniques can be used to identify wide displacement areas and measure displacement ratesover long time series with millimeter-level accuracy.

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).

Use of LIDAR in landslide investigations: a review

This paper presents a short history of the appraisal of laser scanner technologies in geosciences used for imaging relief by high-resolution digital elevation models (HRDEMs) or 3D models. A general overview of light detection and ranging (LIDAR) techniques applied to landslides is given, followed by a review of different applications of LIDAR for landslide, rockfall and debris-flow. These applications are classified as: (1) Detection and characterization of mass movements; (2) Hazard assessment and susceptibility mapping; (3) Modelling; (4) Monitoring.
