Analysis and interpretation of geodetic landslide monitoring data based on fuzzy systems

M. Haberler-Weber

Abstract. To place high precision geotechnical sensors exactly at the boundaries between blocks with different directions and rates of movement in a sliding area, it is important to detect these boundaries in a preceding step. An automated algorithm for the block detection based on fuzzy systems is presented. Combining objective geodetic indicators with fuzzy systems gives a powerful tool for the assessment of geodetic landslide monitoring data. The example of a landsliding area shows the applicability of the algorithm.
