Amendment of Geologically Sensitive Area with Landslide (L0004 Chiayi County and Chiayi City), (L0006 Kaohsiung City) Revealed
The Ministry of Economic Affairs has successively carried out investigations and delineation of geologically sensitive areas on both historic and recent landslide data since 2014. Due to the new evidence was discovered from recent landslide and Taiwan high resolution DEM data derived from Airborne LiDAR, “Geologically Sensitive Area with Landslide (L0004 Chiayi County and Chiayi City)” and “Geologically Sensitive Area with Landslide (L0006 Kaohsiung City)” are amended now. The amended areas are increased 44.67 km2 involving in 10 administrative districts in Chiayi County and Chiayi City; besides, the amended areas are increased 91.85 km2 involving in 20 administrative districts in Kaohsiung City.
