Information on areas susceptible to failure by landsliding is available in many general geologic maps and reports. However, it is commonly presented in complex, technical language, together with data not connected with slope stability. This derivative map is intended to convey such information in nontechnical form so that it will be intelligible to the non-geologist. It portrays only those geologic factors that bear directly on the susceptibility of specific areas to landsliding.
