  • About the Edition

    The 16 contributions to Geographical Information Systems in Assessing Natural Hazards report on GIS investigations into landslides, floods, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and groundwater pollution hazards. Current methods for predicting extreme events are critically discussed, the emphasis being on the intrinsic complexity of this type of operation, requiring many spatial data, long historical records and sound models of the physical processes involved. Within this context, the potentials and limitations of GIS are addressed in terms of data acquisition, spatial data structures and modelling for simulation of the causal phenomena. Geographic Information Systems in Assessing Natural Hazards will help investigators in both public and private institutions to evaluate the actual effectiveness of GIS in coping with natural disasters, and to develop new strategies for projects aimed at the assessment and mitigation of the effects of such catastrophic events.

Hazards. One or multiple natural hazards may be considered in a DSS. As part of the proposed classification system, the review categories for hazards include physical disasters that are quick onset, but excluding extra-terrestrial disasters (such as hazards caused by meteorites) as categorised by the DATA project of IRDR (Integrated Research on Disaster Risk, ), being: Geosciences, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal.

Dear Colleagues, The overall goal of this Special Issue of Geosciences is to explore and evaluate the potential of application of geospatial technologies such as remote sensing, GIS, GPS and spatial statistics in mapping, predicting, monitoring and assessing natural disasters.

Natural disasters, including floods, wildfires Disaster risk is a potential factor in many development projects. Environmental hazards can affect a project area, with socio-economic consequences for the project’s target populations.

Development projects can increase or reduce the risk of natural disaster, through their impact on social resilience and the natural environment. By Landslides are among the most harmful natural hazards for human beings.

This study aims to delineate landslide hazard zones in the Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts of West Bengal, India using a novel ensemble approach combining the weight-of-evidence (WofE) and support vector machine (SVM) techniques with remote sensing datasets and geographic information systems (GIS).

Natural hazards and human intervention Although humans can do little or nothing to change the incidence or intensity of most natural phenomena, they have an important role to play in ensuring that natural events are not converted into disasters by   1.
