Abstract

In recent years, several landslides have had a strong impact on the road network, creating the need to define criteria for management and mitigation of hydrogeological risk through landslide zoning correlated with transport infrastructure systems. The reliability of transport infrastructures plays a key role since, in many cases, their inefficiency has caused serious damage to the anthropic system. Recently, advances in cloud computing have opened new opportunities in early warning and emergency management issues. The scientific community has recognized the added value of a geo-analytic approach in complex decision-making processes for critical situations due to natural events such as landslides. In this context, the research project CLARA [CLoud plAtform and smart underground imaging for natural Risk Assessment] has been developed. The main objective of the project is the acquisition of local knowledge on issues related to landslide risk that may affect urban areas, through the development of smart technologies that allow acquisition, management and sharing of complex information. The results provide a representation of the consequence analyses induced by landslides with reference to the Sicilian road network in the Enna area (southern Italy) to be used when planning the mitigation measures to be undertaken in order to improve the prevention and reduction of the disastrous effects of landslides.
