Identify the landslides produced on the roads (Calacalí - La Independencia and Aloag - Santo Domingo) in the provinces of Pichincha and Santo Domingo, respectively, which have historically been most affected by these natural events.
The project was carried out with the construction of a mass movement risk map on the ArcGis Web platform, using the following geographic variables:
Likewise, the variables of Land Use and Slope of vector format were converted to raster, in order to obtain a single geographical coverage in which the aforementioned data are integrated. This allowed identifying zones in which there is greater vulnerability of landslides taking into account the effect of the gradient and the aspect of the slope in the water erosion.
With the help of the NASA EOSDIS Worldview Dynamic Map, we obtain real-time precipitation data (mm / hr) with which information is crossed to obtain, areas susceptible to landslides.
