Abstract

The present study reveals that the relation between rainfall Precipitation with landslides was carried out. The Precipitation data were collected from IWS (Institution of Water Studies) and analyzed for annual and season wise for the period from 2006 to 2015. The Precipitation data were interpret tolated through spatial distribution methods in GIS and correlated with existing landslide locations. The spatial output of rainfall contour shows that larger area of rainfall is covered with higher amount in Northeast Monsoon when compared to other seasons. However, an almost equal amount of rainfall was noticed in Southwest Monsoon. The above data were taken into a GIS. Using this data, spatial interpolation maps were prepared. It clearly reveals that, high amount of rainfall and existence of landslides occurs throughout the Coonoor region and Wellington and Moderate amount of rainfall and existence of landslides in Kothagiri and Ooty region. This paper highlights the application of GIS in spatially locating the relation between precipitation and landslides.
