Abstract. Assessment of geological hazards in urban areas must integrate geospatial and temporal data, such as complex geology, highly irregular ground surface, fluctuations in pore-water pressure, surface displacements and environmental factors. Site investigation for geological hazard studies frequently produces surface maps, geological information from borehole data, laboratory test results and monitoring data. Specialized web-based GIS tools were created to facilitate geospatial analyses of displacement data from inclinometers and pore pressure data from piezometers as well as geological information from boreholes and surface mapping. A variety of visual aids in terms of graphs or charts can be created in the web page on the fly, e.g. displacement vector, time displacement and summaries of geotechnical testing results. High-resolution satellite or aerial images and LiDAR data can also be effectively managed, facilitating fast and preliminary hazard assessment. A preliminary geohazard assessment using the web based tools was carried out for the Town of Peace River.
