GIS-Based Landslide Susceptibility Mapping of Bhotang, Nepal using Frequency Ratio and Statistical Index Methods


The study aimed to create and validate a landslide susceptibility map for the Bhotang village development committee in Nepal. They used the FR (Frequency ratio) and SI (Statistical Index) methods. They began by constructing a landslide inventory map with satellite images and fieldwork. Ten factors like altitude, slope, land cover, and others were used to develop the map in a GIS environment. The study divided the landslide inventory into training and validation sets, and the resulting susceptibility maps were considered acceptable for hilly regions of Nepal, with area under the curve values greater than 0.7.
