Remote Sensing and the Landslide Hazard and Risk Assessment

This repository is a collection of basic scripts — explained in English and Spanish — for analysing landslides using space-based data in Google Earth Engine (GGE). It aims to facilitate working with big data in the cloud as an alternative to using desktop software

Considerations for selecting appropriate tools

Comparison before after flood event caused by strong rainfalls derivated ETA hurricane at 7 November. We used TerraSAR-X data with medium (ScanSAR mode) and very high resolution (TanDEM-X-1m). Until. The flooded area covered almost all throughout Tabasco State in Mexico
