Abstract: The efficiency of geotechnical and engineering geology surveys in undeveloped regions can now be significantly improved by integrating data made available from the latest remote sensing surveillance technology with the well established methods of terrain evaluation and ground sampling procedures. A strategy is outlined and illustrated by recent case studies in Southeast Asia, how information acquired from the interpretation of remote sensing data can be utilised in geotechnical appraisals of terrain for engineering purposes and integrated with terrain evaluation for establishing database and management systems.
