In this contribution, we assess the vertical accuracy of the Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) World 3D 30 m (AW3D30) digital elevation model (DEM) using the runway method (RWYM). The RWYM utilizes the longitudinal profiles of runways which are reliable and ubiquitous reference data. A reference dataset used in this project consists of 36 runways located at various points throughout the world. We found that AW3D30 has a remarkably low root mean square error (RMSE) of 1.78 m (one sigma). However, while analysing the results, it has become apparent that it also contains a widespread elevation anomaly. We conclude that this anom . . .aly is the result of uncompensated sensor noise and the data processing algorithm. Also, we note that the traditional accuracy assessment of a DEM does not allow for identification of these type of anomalies in a DEM. © 2018 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group Daha fazlası Daha az

Since Turkey is located on a region that is prone to the risks of natural disasters like earthquake, flooding, and avalanche; a majority of the residential areas are facing these risks at various levels. Before determination of these risks, taking action in order to decrease the vulnerability levels of the residential areas will help keep the damage at the minimum level in case of a disaster. Urban planning decisions which are made in accordance with vulnerability studies aiming to determine natural disaster risks will not only help prevent loss of life but also help decrease negative social and economic effects of disasters. The Zo . . .nguldak city has been chosen as a case study area since Zonguldak metropolitan area has endured almost all kinds of threats that a city can face. In this study disaster-producing factors in the area are primarily considered which can be named as topography, destruction of forest lands, geological and karstic structure, mining activities, and misuse of the land, and later risk assessment is conducted with geographic information system (GIS). It has been assessed that more than half of the buildings within the study area were constructed in areas not suitable for housing. It is concluded that there is a need for urgent urban development plan for the city. © 2014 Taylor & Francis Daha fazlası Daha az
