Development of a local GIS

The GIS technology is an attractive device to support landslide monitoring and makes possible to understand the interaction of the different processes. The results of geodetic deformation measurements are the attributes of different geometric elements. They can be used to investigate the recent landslide activity looking for the alarm signals of the potential risk. The geometric arrangement of the developed basic GIS system is a 8 km; 12 km central area covered by four topographic map segments (scale: 1:10 000) that are given in the national grid. This is the base layer of the system in raster data format, which allows the geometric interpretation of the different objects. Other involved maps were scanned, scaled and rotated to the same system using raster data format. The precision of the objects orientation is better than 1 cm.
