Paper Abstract

A method for seismogeological hazards extraction using high resolution remote sensing was proposed in the research taken the epicenter of Wenchuan earthquake-Yingxiu town as the study area. In which, making imagery was built according to the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) to remove interfering factors. Then, the masked imagery was diced into several small parts to reduce the large imageries’ inconsistency and they were used as the sources to be classified. After that, the vector conversion was performed on the classified images to mapping geological hazards. Finally, other interfering factors such as bare lands, lands covered by few vegetation and buildings on the top altitude were removed manually. For it can extract geological hazards in a short time, it is of great importance for the decision–makers and rescuers to know the damaged degree in the disaster area, especially within 72 hours after the earthquake. Therefore, it will play an important role in decision making, site rescue and hazards response planning.
