Abstract

Landslides are one of the most destructive phenomena of nature that cause damage to both property and life every year. As a mountainous metropolitan with plentiful rainfall, landslide early-warning system in Hong Kong is necessary for mitigating the loss and planning of future development. This paper reports our early attempts of establishing a cloud-enabled landslide early warning system. We analyze a series of factors contributing to landslide by frequency ratio method, and provide a map of susceptibility zonation. This study provides a preliminary evaluation of the landslide triggering factors for next step cloud-enabled model construction.
