In this paper, we explore the relationship between land use practices and landslides triggered by rainfall in eastern Taiwan. Before-and-after satellite images, combined with an artificial neural network method, enable the classification of land use and landslide zones. Genetic algorithms are used to evaluate the land use factors causing landslides. Using the geographic information system ArcGIS to support spatial reasoning, predictive maps are produced. The results suggest that the proposed method and procedures can be an effective tool for landslide monitoring and would be easily transferred to other similar applications.
