Natural hazard assessments are core to risk definition and early warning systems and play a fundamental role in the prevention of major damages. Traditional hazard identification methods are static. For this reason, new information and conditions cannot be easily included in the pre-defined hazard assessments. The Bayesian Networks can be used effectively for dynamic hazard identification. In this study, a methodology based on the Bayesian Networks model is presented for dynamic avalanche hazard assessment, in which changed and renewed data can be included in the system. In the proposed methodology, the integration of the Bayesian Networks and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is modeled in the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) perspective. In this structure, it is possible to combine and analyze the data obtained from different sources and factors for avalanche hazard can be dynamically updated with real-time updated data and temporal hazard mapping can be produced. The proposed methodology provides a generic structure and has an attribute making it applicable for dynamic mapping studies for other disasters.
