Abstract

In this study, a landslide inventory map is derived from a representative sample of landslides using multi-temporal aerial-photo-interpretation and field investigations. The stability is modeled using LOGISNET (Multiple Logistic Regression, Geographic Information System, and Neural Network) as a tool to compare and contrasts the advantages and limitations of two landslides susceptibility models : Stability Index MAPping (SINMAP) and Multiple Logistic Regression (MLR). Both models are embedded in LOGISNET to predict landslides and facilitate the analysis. The validations of the resulting susceptibility maps were performed by comparing them with the inventory map in a contingency table. This research uses the stream system of the Río Chiquito-Barranca del Muerto watershed as a case-study area. The study area is located in the SW flank of Pico de Orizaba Volcano, Veracruz-Puebla
