    Geotechnical engineering is a discipline that plays a critical role within all infrastructure and development projects. Failure to adequately account for the influence of the ground regularly leads to increased costs that often can be disproportionately high compared to the savings made by such neglect. In this paper, an integration landslide susceptibility model by combining expert-based and bivariate statistical analysis (Landslide Susceptibility Index—LSI) approaches is presented. Factors related with the occurrence of landslides—such as elevation, slope angle, slope aspect, lithology, land cover, Mean Annual Precipitation (MAP) and Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA)—were analyzed within Cited by: 7.

The importance of scale during the different steps of geomorphological mapping is a well-discussed issue within the scientific community. Nevertheless, in association with the growing importance of geomorphosite assessment, evaluation, promotion and preservation, the use of different scales is yet to be clearly defined, especially because of the differences in spatial scale of the Cited by: 7.

The intention of this book is not to produce a standardised mapping methodology or to provide a detailed geomorphological legend, but it is an attempt to bring together leading exponents in the preparation and use of geomorphological maps and illustrate how they are being used to investigate a wide range of environmental by: 1.

Introduction. Geomorphological mapping plays an essential role in understanding Earth surface processes, geochronology, natural resources, natural hazards and landscape evolution (Blaszczynski,Bishop and Shroder, a).It involves the partitioning of the terrain into conceptual spatial units/entities based upon criteria that include morphology (form), genetics (process), composition Cited by: Problems of medium-scale geomorphological mapping: proceedings of the 7th Meeting [of the] International Geographical Union, Commission on Geomorphic Survey and Mapping, Brno, October 27 to 30, / editor: Jaromír Demek.

Geomorphological maps are very effective tools in management of land resources and help in various types of resources inventory, mapping and management. Running water, wind, glaciers, karst and sea waves are powerful erosional and depositional agents, which are acting over a long period of time and produce systematic changes leading to Author: G.

Obi Reddy. The scale of a map is the ratio of a distance on the map to the corresponding distance on the ground. This simple concept is complicated by the curvature of the Earth's surface, which forces scale to vary across a map. Because of this variation, the concept of scale becomes meaningful in two distinct ways.
