Landslide databases and input parameters used for modeling landslide hazard often contain imprecisions and uncertainties inherent in the decision-making process. Dealing with imprecision and uncertainty requires techniques that go beyond classical logic. In this paper, methods of fuzzy k -means classification were used to assign digital terrain attributes to continuous landform classes whereas the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence was used to represent and manage imprecise information and to… CONTINUE READING
