LANDSLIDES INCIDENTS IN FEDERAL TERRITORY OF KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIASyaidatul Azwani Zulkafli and Nuriah Abd Majid
A landslide can be defined as a geohazard incident involving most of the movement of soil surfaces, rock falls or a combination of both movements resulting from gravity attraction. The initial definition of a landslide was recorded by James Dwight Fund in 1862, where landslide is classified into three types, which are now known as flowing debris, land spread, and rock slides. Overgrowing urbanisation has become one of the major contributors to landslides for years. Malaysia is one of the most developed nations that has undergone rapid development since the 1970's, resulting in a higher frequency of landslide activity. When developments and urbanisations continue to overgrow, landslide failures and other effects of soil gesture failures will also rise significantly. Hence, a study is conducted to identify the number of landslides in Kuala Lumpur areas from 2010 to 2020. There were 50 cases of landslide collected across Kuala Lumpur over these ten years. The GIS software was used in this study to generate the distribution map of the landslide incidents.
