The purpose of this study was to highlight the analytic power of a Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS) in slope stability problems and to present the process followed during the systematic study of the landslide phenomena manifested in the Chalki village, Korinthos Prefecture, Greece. The mass movements affected the residential area of Chalki village making urgent the need of immediate mitigation measures. The two main objectives of the developed Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS) were to evaluate the landslide susceptibility of the research area and to locate the most suitable areas for addressing investigation schemes and installing landslide monitoring systems.
