Abstract: Risk intensity for eight geo-environmental parameters viz., Drainage density, Slope, Lithology, Geomorphology, Lineament, Soil texture, Soil depth, landuse land cover were used for demarcating the landslide Hazard Zone (LHZ) using geospatial techniques. The results reveal that humans have settled around moderate (18.69%) and high (11.95%) landslide hazard prone area. Majority of the study area 69.35% falls in low hazard category and is covered by forest. Low hazard zone is highly suitable for future expansion of built up area.
