Online Presentation open to all NZGS Members
The presentation will comprise a selection of brief landslip case studies across Northland (and a couple in Auckland). The case studies will review how the landslips may have been identified and include a summary of some of the tools available for land stability assessment. A brief overview of use of terrain models in QGIS (open source software) and on-screen viewing of aerial photo stereo pairs will be given. The case studies also serve as a reminder of the regular occurrence of landslips across Northland, not just affecting roads but also in areas of both older and more recent development, most of which are not publicly reported.
The presentation will be followed by a chance for questions/discussions.
