One of the serious dangers which threatens human communities especially those who are living in mountainous areas is the occurrence of landslides. Therefore, determination of the areas with potential for landslide events is very important for avoiding establishment of residential areas or industrial facilities. The aim of this study is to provide a landslide potential map in Sheshpeer sub-catchment, Iran, using an integration of remote sensing (RS) techniques and geographical information systems (GIS). Compared with the traditional approaches, these techniques are very fast, inexpensive and trustworthy in landslide mapping. For this purpose, we collected and produced seven data layers using GIS and RS, and then Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method was applied for data analysis. Our results showed that among the twelve pervious landslide events in this area, nine of them are located in the regions with very high potentiality and the others are in highly potential regions for landslides occurrence.
