Paper Abstract

An inference of landslide areas using digital elevation data and Landsat TM band 6 data has been performed on the basis of the assumption that the occurrence of landslides is closely related to the amount of underground-water and the topographic features of watersheds. It is shown that it is possible to distinguish between dangerous landslide areas and non-landslide areas by using spatial features of watersheds, such as the area, mean slop and shape factor, and the ground surface temperature obtained from Landsat TM data.
