Landslides and Lidar

A team of researchers at Oregon State University has published a paper entitled, “Contour Connection Method for Automated Identification and Classification of Landslide Deposits.”

This paper outlines a novel algorithm to automatically and consistently detect landslide deposits on a landscape scale. The proposed method is named the Contour Connection Method (CCM) and is primarily based on bare earth lidar data requiring minimal user input such as the landslide scarp and deposit gradients.

There is a fee to purchase the paper.
