Z_GIS’ iSLIDE team conducts Landslide Mapping workshops in Taiwan

In a series of workshops at the National Taiwan University (April 2/3, 2014) and the Disaster Prevention Research Center (DPRC) at the National Cheng Kung University (April 7-11, 2014), the Salzburg team shared its expertise in computer-based landslide mapping with researchers and experts in Taiwan. The workshops created an ideal platform for sharing and exchanging knowledge on data, methods and product validation in semi-automated landslide mapping and object-based image analysis (OBIA) using multi-source remote sensing data.

Recent iSLIDE project
results comprising products such as landslide (change) maps and mapping routines were presented and discussed with the experts on-site. Field trips to the Baichi and Huaguoshan catchment provided an opportunity to obtain data that will serve in the validation process of maps that were recently produced by applying semi-automated workflows. Z_GIS looks forward to continuing the successful collaboration between Austria and Taiwan in the field of digital landslide mapping.
