Abstract

An integrated approach to landslide hazard monitoring and data interpretation is presented. Based on geotechnical sensor data, numerical process simulation related to probable failure modes, a digital library of case histories and modelling results, and GIS tools, the approach is intended to support the data analysis and decision making of technical personnel. To improve the quality of the data derived from the numerical simulation tools for complex slopes, with variable sub-surface conditions and observed variation in displacement across the landslide surface and within the mass, a suite of tools to extract geometrical and geological data has been developed. Preliminary results from the work show that the tools identify progressive zonation of movement within the slope and simulate variable movement across and within the slope mass.
