Although typically small in terms of their spatial footprint, landslide hazards are relatively frequent in Northern Iran. We assess landslide susceptibility for the nearly 20.000 km2 large study area of the Urmia lake basin which is dominated by agricultural land use but includes the major settlements areas of the East Azerbaijan province, Iran. Landslide(More)
Although typically small in terms of their spatial footprint, landslide hazards are relatively frequent in Northern Iran. In this study, we combine Geographic Information System (GIS), remote sensing and derive a landscape susceptibility map for Bostan Abad County, Iran. The main objective is an inventory evaluation and zonation of natural landslides. This(More)
The GIS-multicriteria decision analysis (GIS-MCDA) technique is increasingly used for landslide hazard mapping and zonation. It enables the integration of different data layers with different levels of uncertainty. In this study, three different GIS-MCDA methods were applied to landslide susceptibility mapping for the Urmia lake basin in northwest Iran.(More)
GIS-based Multicriteria Decision Analysis (GIS-MCDA) provides a rich collection of techniques and procedures for landslide susceptibility mapping. In this study landslide susceptibility was evaluated by applying different analytical GIS techniques based on Ordered Weighted Averaging (OWA) criteria. The OWA-MCDA is complemented by a Monte Carlo Simulation(More)

—The main objective of this research was to establish a semiautomated object-based image analysis (OBIA) methodology for locating landslides. We have detected and delineated landslides within a study area in northwestern Iran using normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), brightness, and textural features derived from satellite imagery (IRS-ID and(More)
Uncertainty is associated with GIS-Multi Criteria Decision Analysis (GIS-MCDA) when applied to disaster modeling. Technically speaking, GIS-MCDA model outcomes are prone to multiple types of uncertainty and error. In order to minimize the inherent uncertainty, within this research we introduced a novel approach of spatial explicit uncertainty and(More)
