[HTT19-P07] Using GIS and remote sensing to assess relationships between landslides and land cover changes in the Sanbagawa and Mikabu Belts, Shikoku, Japan
Keywords:Landslides, Shikoku, GIS , Remote Sensing
Here we track long-term land cover changes over vegetated landslide areas of the Sanbagawa and Mikabu Belts of Shikoku Island, Japan, and conduct spatio-temporal analyses to assess relationships between landslides and land cover changes. Given changing land uses, including land abandonment in these landslide areas over time, we use long-term high-resolution land cover vegetation datasets to examine first the long-term land use changes, and then use statistical methods to explore their relationships with landslide susceptibility and kinematics. Mapping of spatial data and their analysis using GIS constitute a core part of the research. The results suggest interconnections between land use changes and land movement.
