The increase in the frequency of natural disasters in recent years and its consequent social, economic and environmental impacts make it possible to prioritize areas of risk as an essential measure in order to maximize harm reduction. This case study, developed in the city of Novo Hamburgo, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil, aims to identify and evaluate areas susceptible to mass movements, through the development of a model based on logistic regression, associated to Geographic Information… Expand

Potential of Ensemble Learning to Improve Tree-Based Classifiers for Landslide Susceptibility Mapping
A stacking ensemble learning framework coupled with embedded feature selection is presented, consisting of multiple tree-based classifiers mentioned previously as base learners and logistic regression as a metalearner in a two-layer structure that is more effective than the conventional tree- based classifiers and other ensemble learning methods.
