LANDSLIDE HAZARD ZONATION MAPPING OF CHAMOLI LANDSLIDES IN REMOTE SENSING AND GIS ENVIRONMENT
Landslides are very common problem in hilly terrain. Chamoli region of Himalaya is highest sensitive zone of the landslide hazards. The purpose of Chamoli landslide study, to observe the important terrain factors and parameters responsible for landslide initiation. Lithological, geomorphological, slope, aspect, landslide, drainage density and lineament density map generated in remote sensing and GIS environment. Data information of related geological terrain obtain through topographic maps, remote sensing images, field visits and geological maps. Geodatabases of all thematic layers prepared through digitization of topographic map and satellite imageries (LISS-III, LISS-IV & ASTER DEM). Integrated all thematic layers applying information value method under GIS environment to map the zonation of landslide hazard zonation map validation and verification completed by field visit. The landslide hazard zonation map classified in four classes very high, high, medium and low.
