The HKJCDPRI Research Grant 2016 was awarded to The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). The research aims to develop a new smart Landslide Information System (LIS) that can improve the planning of access and evacuation routes for emergency responders during intense rainstorms. Furthermore, the LIS aims to provide easily accessible real-time landslide information to the public and to enhance landslide incident reporting in Hong Kong via smart technology.
