Landslide Incidence and Susceptibility in the Conterminous United States


These data are a digital version of U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper 1183, Landslide Overview Map of the Conterminous United States. The map and digital data delineate areas in the conterminous United States where large numbers of landslides have occurred and areas which are susceptible to landsliding. Because the data are highly generalized, owing to the small scale and the scarcity of precise landslide information for much of the country, they are unsuitable for local planning or actual site selection. This National Atlas map layer was previously distributed as Digital Representation of the Landslide Overview Map of the Conterminous United States.
