  • Active landslides have three major effects on a landscape: 1. land cover change, 2. topographical change, and 3. above ground biomass change. Data derived from multi-temporal Light Detection and Ranging technology (LiDAR) is used in combination with multi-temporal orthophotos to quantify changes between 2006 and 2012, caused by a landslide near Doren in Austria. Data synergy is used to optimize accuracies of land cover change, and to improve results of topographical change analysis and aboveground biomass estimations. Topographical change is calculated using differencing of digital terrain models. The above ground biomass is quantified by applying a local-maximum algorithm for tree to...
