GIS Methods and Multi-Temporal Remote Sensing Data for Improved Landslide Hazard Mapping in Southern Kyrgystan

This article discusses how multi-temporal remote sensing data and landslide information sources combined with GIS can be used to make a multi-temporal landslide inventory for South Kyrgyzstan. This would allow for more precise tracking of landslide activity and accurate landslide hazard assessments. Tracking landslide triggering factors, such as precipitation and seismicity, GIS and and remote sensing data were used to predict and pinpoint the areas most likely to have landslides.

Figure 3 and Figure 4 show how spatial mapping was used to identify the origins of landslides and then track the affected areas in South Kyrgyzstan.
