Ecological Indicators | Year: 2016

The extensive use of modeling and technologies such as a geographic information system (GIS) in ecological vulnerability assessment and the recognition of eco-environmentally vulnerable areas from the perspective of spatial positioning provide important complements to urban ecological space management research. This study establishes an ecological vulnerability assessment indicator system containing nine elements and twelve indicators with respect to ecological sensitivity, ecological pressure, and self-resilience. The range of ecologically vulnerable areas in a highly urbanized region is spatially recognized. Management strategies are proposed with regard to institutionalization and marketization. The results show that the ecological vulnerability in Shenzhen is good overall and that most areas are moderately vulnerable; the goal of space management is to enhance ecological function and prevent further expansion of the city as a threat to ecological security. Highly vulnerable areas are mainly distributed in the west and agglomerate with urban functional areas; it is suggested to delimit an ecological red line in this region and implement the most stringent "steel wire" control following the existing ecological protection law in China. Furthermore, this study proposes an ecological preparedness system suited for the particularity of the highly urbanized region in Shenzhen and attempts to introduce marketization into ecological restoration to solve the economic and social plight of ecological reconstruction in highly urbanized regions. The vulnerability assessment results objectively reflect the condition of the regional ecological environment, and the space management policy has implications for ecological protection, resource utilization, and sustainable development in similar cities. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

As high spatial resolution remotely sensed image be acquired more easily, there is a great potential for obtaining forest inventory automatically and cost-efficiently. A method was proposed to detect the lichee's treetop and delineate tree-crown. The method can be divided into three steps. In the first step, a 3×3 mean filter was utilized to smooth image, and then the image was inverted through subtracting image from the maximum of the filtered image. The second step was individual tree detection, namely treetop detection. The inverted image can be viewed as a topographic surface, the flow direction grid was built and then the depressions grid was extracted. The depressions distributed on roads and constructions were deleted according to the predefined threshold. Watersheds were delineated to obtain the contributing area of depressions viewing depressions as the pour point. For solving that the multiple depressions were erroneously identified within the same crown, the depressions were deleted if the distance to the nearest depression was less than threshold and the mean value of depression in the filtered image was not the maximum in multiple depressions, the watersheds of multiple depressions were merged. The remaining depressions were viewed as the detected treetop. The third step was to delineate the tree-crown by using region growing method. The remaining depressions were used for seed points, crown regions were expanded from depression to surrounding pixels until the difference between the pixel and mean value of depression exceeded the predefined threshold or to the boundary of depression watershed. A 324 pixel×483 pixel Pléiades image with 0.5 m resolution was employed to test the method. A promising agreement between the detected results and manual delineation results was achieved in counting the number of trees and the area of delineating tree crowns. For individual tree detection, the overall accuracy was 87.75%, user's accuracy was 80.69%, producer's accuracy was 96.06%; for individual tree-crow delineation, the overall accuracy was 78.69%, user's accuracy was 71.32%, producer's accuracy was 87.76%. © 2016, Chinese Society of Agricultural Machinery.

Landslides | Year: 2015

A bibliometric analysis was conducted to evaluate landslide research from different perspectives during the period 1991–2014 based on the Science Citation Index-Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index databases. Based on a sample of 10,567 articles that were related to landslides, the bibliometric analysis revealed the scientific outputs, science categories, source titles, global geographical distribution of the authors, productive authors, international collaborations, institutions, and temporal evolution of keyword frequencies. Landslide-related research has undergone notable growth during the past two decades. Multidisciplinary Geosciences, Geological Engineering, and Water Resources were the three major science categories, and Geomorphology was the most active journal during the surveyed period. The major author clusters and research regions are located in North America, Western Europe, and East Asia. The USA was a leading contributor to global landslide research, with the most independent and collaborative articles, and its dominance was also confirmed in the national/regional collaboration network. The Chinese Academy of Sciences, US Geological Survey, and Italian National Research Council were the three major contributing institutions. Guzzetti F from the Italian National Research Council was the most productive author, with the most high-quality articles. A keyword analysis found that landslide susceptibility assessment, rainfall- and earthquake-induced landslide stability, and effective research technologies and methods were consistent topics that attracted the most attention during the study period. Several keywords, such as “landslide susceptibility”, “earthquake”, “GIS”, “remote sensing”, and “logistic regression”, received dramatically increased attention during the study period, possibly signalling future research trends. © 2015 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

Several extensive landslides have occurred in the vicinity of the Three Gorges Reservoir since its initial impoundment in June 2003. A reduction of the landslide risk is essential for the safety and security of lives and property in the region. This study analyses the deformation states of two typical colluvial landslides (the Baijiabao and Laoshewo landslides) using 6 years of monitoring data, a two-step cluster analysis, and the Apriori algorithm. The landslide displacement versus time curves exhibit step-like patterns, and the landslide deformation is highly correlated with fluctuations in the reservoir level and seasonal precipitation. To determine different types of landslide deformation, the monthly displacement curves of the colluvial landslides are classified into three types using a two-step cluster analysis: initial deformation, constant deformation, and rapid deformation. Five driving factors were selected as the antecedents for the Apriori algorithm to obtain rules that describe the relationships between the landslide deformation and the influential parameters. These factors include the cumulative precipitation over the previous month, the maximum daily precipitation during the current month, changes in the reservoir level over the previous month, cumulative increases in the reservoir level and the average reservoir level during the current month. The analytical results were validated by comparing them with observed landslide deformation characteristics using three measurement standards: support, confidence and lift. The results show that the combined method of a two-step cluster analysis with the Apriori algorithm can effectively model the landslide deformation states that are associated with the Baijiabao and Laoshewo landslides. Moreover, this method may serve as a potential reference for deformation analyses of colluvial landslides in the Three Gorges. © 2015, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Landslide susceptibility prediction is the key technology in landslide monitoring, early warning, and assessment. The core problem in quantitative prediction of landslide hazards is the effective selection of conditioning factors and prediction models. In this paper, the Three Gorges Reservoir area was selected as a case study to predict landslide susceptibility. First,, key landslide-related factors were selected as input variables using topographic, geological, and remote sensing data. Secondly, according to the nonlinear and uncertainty characteristics of landslides, a PSO-SVM model was trained and used to assess landslide susceptibility. Finally, the prediction results of grid- and object-based prediction models were validated by comparing them with known landslides using the classification accuracy. The results show that object-based PSO-SVM possesses high prediction accuracy with the area under curve of 0.8415 and a Kappa coefficient of 0.8490. These experimental results are consistent with field investigations and can provide a reference for landslide prevention and reduction in the Three Gorges, China. © 2016, Wuhan University All right reserved.

Central Business District (CBD) is the core area of urban planning and decision management. The cartographic definition and representation of CBD is of great significance in studying the urban development and its functions. In order to facilitate these processes, the Kernel Density Estimation (KDE) is a very efficient tool as it considers the decay impact of services and allows the enrichment of the information from a very simple input scatter plot to a smooth output density surface. However, most existing methods of density analysis consider geographic events in a homogeneous and isotropic space under Euclidean space representation. Considering the case that the physical movement in the urban environment is usually constrained by a street network, we propose a different method for the delimitation of CBD with network configurations. First, starting from the locations of central activities, a concentration index is presented to visualize the functional urban environment by means of a density surface, which is refined with network distances rather than Euclidean ones. Then considering the specialties of network distance computation problem, an efficient way supported by flow extension simulation is proposed. Taking Shenzhen and Guangzhou, two quite developed cities in China as two case studies, we demonstrate the easy implementation and practicability of our method in delineating CBD. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
