(Infographic) The Rise against Landslides: Big Data to the Rescue

Landslides are a very common problem in Malaysia. Every year, we encounter small and big landslides, and they happen without any warning. Because of this, landslides can kill, like in the Hulu Langat tragedy, where 16 lives were lost. Two landslides occurred at the steep slopes behind the orphanage, partially burying the three-story building. In this infographic, find out how big data analytics can monitor slope movements in realtime and more importantly, predict when a landslide will happen. Proactive action can then be taken to secure the slope and prevent a landslide from happening. You can download the high-resolution version here. Also, here’s a more detailed story on how sensors and big data analytics can be used to monitor and prevent landslides.
