Landslide Susceptibility Assessment in Agricultural Land using Remote Sensing and GIS

ls7Year: 2009-2010
Country: Indonesia
Location within country: Malang and Blitar districts

The objectives of this project were: 1) To explore ALOS satellite data for identification of landslide points, 2) To assess landslide susceptibility using a deterministic model called SINMAP, 3) To compare landslide map generated by the SINMAP model with the existing landslide map prepared from weighted overlay method, 4) To update the previous landuse/landcover map using the ALOS data.

Landslide Hazard Zonation Mapping for Sustainable Development in Bhutan - A Case Study in Phuntsholing Area

ls6Year: 2008-2009
Country: Bhutan
Location within country: Phuntsholing area

The project aimed at modeling the rain triggered landslides utilizing a deterministic slope stability predictive tool based on RS and GIS technologies.
The study area, Phuntsholing has very steep terrains with weak geology, and during the rainy season the region witnesses many landslides and the situation are getting worse due to population pressure as well as infrastructure development, especially roads.
