WHAT
LAMPRE Educational (LEdu) is a collection of talks, activities and resources aimed at non-experts to help them better understand the general background, processes, issues and resources available for landslides and triggered landslide events. LEdu is also the potential custom-made educational resources that can be created by LAMPRE, on demand.

WHERE
The need for education related to landslides and landslide triggered events is everywhere, in all countries. LAMPRE Educational (LEdu) can provide this training, either through existing activities and resources (e.g., via the LAMPRE web page), or through custom made talks, workshops or other material such as learning pamphlets and practicals.

WHEN
LAMPRE Educational (LEdu) can provide existing resources now, via the LAMPRE web page, or customized educational products and services on landslides, triggered landslide events and other related topics, within weeks to months from the request.

WHO
LAMPRE Educational (LEdu) is aimed at non-experts interested in learning more about landslides and triggered landslide events, including the general public, students, teachers, and decision makers.

SPECIFICATIONS
LAMPRE Educational (LEdu) activities and resources include:

  • LAMPRE Landslide talks and workshops explaining the basics of landslides and triggered landslide events. Webcast versions of these talks are 45 and 3 minutes.
  • A LAMPRE Google Earth Practical for the identification of landslides (15 pages).
  • A LAMPRE Interactive Presentation on landslides and triggered landslide events (see top figure, PREZI).
  • A set of 25 LAMPRE Landslide Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) with detailed answers.
  • A web site with all the above activities, plus a set of web links to:
    • General landslide information (8 links)
    • Landslide videos and photos (14 links)
    • Landslide activities and teaching (9 links)

WHAT
A Landslide Inventory Map (LIM) shows the location, spatial extent and type of landslides in a region. LAMPRE has advanced the methods available to prepare and update LIMs through expert visual interpretation of very-high resolution stereoscopic satellite images.

WHERE
The methods developed by LAMPRE can be used to prepare a LIM anywhere stereoscopic satellite images of adequate quality are available. The methods work in all landscapes and climatic regions, and are applicable for areas ranging from a few to several hundreds of square kilometres. The methods developed by LAMPRE can be used in combination, or as an alternative, to the traditional methods used by geomorphologists, which are based on the visual interpretation of stereoscopic aerial photographs.

WHEN
LAMPRE can prepare or update a LIM whenever new stereoscopic satellite imagery becomes available for an area of interest. The time for the preparation or the update of a LIM varies from a few days to several months, depending on the extent and the complexity of the study area. LAMPRE can prepare multi-temporal LIMs by periodically systematically updating the LIM for the same area.

WHO
Civil Protection authorities use LIMs in the aftermath of an event for improved rescue and recovery operation.


Planning & development authorities use LIMs to identify areas affected by landslides, and so that dangerous areas can be avoided.
Transportation authorities & utility managers use LIMs to evaluate the impact of landslides on transportation or utility networks.
Agricultural & forest agencies use LIMs to assess the impact of landslides on crops and forests.
Scientists use LIMs for erosional studies and to determine the statistics of landslide areas.

SPECIFICATIONS
LAMPRE prepares LIMs at scales ranging from 1:25,000 (smaller scale) to 1:10,000 (larger scale) in periods ranging from days to months, depending on the extent and complexity of the study area. To prepare a LIM, LAMPRE needs stereoscopic satellite images or aerial photographs, and delivers the LIM in raster and vector formats.

WHAT
An Event Landslide Inventory Map (ELIM) shows the location and extent of landslides caused by a specific natural trigger, such as an intense rainfall event, a period of prolonged rainfall, a rapid snowmelt event, or an earthquake. LAMPRE has advanced methods and tools to prepare ELIMs exploiting high and very-high resolution optical satellite images.

WHERE
The methods and tools developed by LAMPRE allow preparation of an ELIM anywhere recent landslides have left discernible signs captured in the optical satellite images. The methods and tools work best in vegetated terrain where the event landslides have removed the vegetation, and are applicable in areas ranging from a few to a few hundred square kilometres.

WHEN
LAMPRE can prepare an ELIM within hours to days after a landslide triggering event, provided adequate satellite imagery is taken shortly after the event.

WHO
Civil Protection authorities use ELIMs in the aftermath of an event for improved rescue and recovery operation. 
Planning & development authorities use ELIMs to identify areas recently affected by landslides, and avoid dangerous areas.
Transportation authorities & utility managers use ELIMs to evaluate the impact of landslides on transportation or utility network.
Agricultural & forest agencies use ELIMs to assess the impact of landslides on crops and forests.
Scientists use ELIMs to prepare multi-temporal inventories useful for erosional studies, and to determine the statistics of landslide areas.

SPECIFICATIONS
LAMPRE prepares ELIMs at scales ranging from 1:25,000 (smaller scale) to 1:5000 (larger scale) in periods ranging from hours to days after the delivery of the high resolution (HR) and very-high resolution (VHR) optical satellite images. LAMPRE uses pre- and/or post-event satellite images, and delivers ELIMs in raster and vector formats.
