Narrative Description of Project:

The objectives of the project were to identify the areas of land sliding on main highways of Northern Areas of Pakistan and mapping the same over satellite imagery through GPS. The maps generate as a result of GPS based field surveys were overlaid on meteorological data sets to ascertain correlation between precipitation and land sliding on steep slopes along the roadside. The major outcome of the study was development of GIS based system for automated recording, reporting and disseminating information of land sliding in time among various stakeholders over GSM network.
