Abstract

Data mining techniques have potential to unveil the complexity of an event and yields knowledge that can create a difference. They can be employed to investigate natural phenomena; since these events are complex in nature and are difficult to characterize as there are elements of uncertainty involved in their functionality. Therefore, techniques that are compatible with uncertain elements can be employed to study them. This chapter explains the concepts of data mining and discusses at length about the landslide event. Further, the utility of data mining techniques in disaster management using a previous work was explained and provides a brief note on the efficiency of web mining in creating awareness about natural hazard by providing refined information. Finally, a conceptual framework for landslide hazard assessment using data mining techniques such as Artificial Neural Network (ANN), Fuzzy Geometric Mean Model (FGMM), etc. were chosen for description. It was quite clear from the study that data mining techniques are useful in assessing and modelling different aspects of landslide event.
