The objective of Live Land is to improve the forecasting, monitoring and alerting of landslide and subsidence hazards across transport networks. Live Land improves intelligent forecasting of landslide through the incorporation of forecast and real time meteorological data and geological modelling. This capability allows landslide hazard susceptibility to be assessed across transport networks. Live Land incorporates a ‘catalogue’ concept, of enabling technologies (in–‐situ and from Space) that could improve the prediction, monitoring and alerting of Landslides and Subsidence. Intelligent prediction is coupled with tailored monitoring technologies, including the development of low cost GNSS modules, and a suite of alerting technologies / services will provide users with the intelligence to access and manage hazards.
The project is driven by the needs and requirements of Network Rail (Scotland), Transport Scotland, Czech Republic Road and Motorway Directorate and the Norwegian Public Road Administration.
CGI invite you to a webinar Wednesday 9th October 14:00-16:00 presenting the results of the Live Land Feasibility Study for ESA evaluating the role and added value of space assets in improving the monitoring and forecasting of landslides and subsidence affecting transportation.
The event will be of interest to owners and operators of transport infrastructure who operate in areas susceptible to landslide and subsidence hazards
Live Land is a European Space Agency funded project under the Integrated Applications Promotion Program.
