Abstract

The aims of this study are to develop a methodology for regional scale assessment of landslide hazard using remotely sensed data, and to produce a landslide hazard map of the Wushan-Badong area in the Three Gorges, from Advanced Spaceborn Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) images. The area is undergoing rapid urban development, with slope instability causing a widespread natural hazard. The results indicate good correlation between classified high-hazard areas and field-confirmed slope failures, and show the usefulness of ASTER imagery for landslide hazard assessment at a regional scale
