This paper describes the application of the Global Positioning system (Gps) technology predict to lnass of landslide hazardout ui"ut- Landslide is a general term used to describe a movement of a propeffy rock' earth or debris down a slope under the influence of gravity. This occurrence causes with damage, injury, death and adversely affects a variety ofiesources in the disaster areas. ground current movement' GPS technology, it is possibie to monito. ,,rb-""ntimeter deformations of any GPS requires.no and monitor line-of-sight between stations. This enables Gps to function post-processing landslides mode' even during unfavorile weather condition either in real time frame or satellite geometry However, the affainable accuracy of a Gps based ,yri"r' is limited by the paper and systematic errors such as multi-path and weak ,ut.llit, geometry. This movement highlights the investigation of landslide motions to produce a prediction map of mass using GPS mapping- The research investigation described was conducted at a small landslide area along a new iouo connecting pos selim to Kampong Raja.
