Satellite imaging allows landslide prediction and preparation

Monday, 13 June, 2016
Landslides can now be identified, mapped and characterised using optical images from satellites, following an EU-funded project that has also made it possible to predict such events and to simulate their effects on transport links.

The tools developed by the LAMPRE project use high- and very high-resolution optical images collected by satellites and have been proven accurate in practical studies around the world. LAMPRE has also tested new methods to simulate the impact of tens of thousands of landslides on road networks in hilly or mountainous areas.
