TXT-tool 3.034-2.1: A Debris Flow Regional Fast Hazard Assessment Toolbox
The rapid development of GIS techniques permits the regional scale assessment for natural hazards. In this work different declared as GNU/GPL open source codes for debris flow hazard assessment have been developed for risk management and educational porpoises. The toolbox here presented manages the large amount of regional spatially distributed geographic information and includes: shallow landslide susceptibility assessment tools; an in-channel debris flow triggering mechanism evaluation tool; and the stochastic debris flow propagation tool “DebrisDice”. The tools are presented as executables in order to enhance the usability. Input/output are in ASCII grid format.
