GIS landslide-hazard maps are a common and useful tool for people involved in disaster management, spatial planning and disaster recovery, providing an image of the most susceptible areas and so enabling better pre-, during and post-event decision-making. In assessing regional landslide hazards several issues must be considered. The place and time when a landslide may occur, its dimensions, how fast and far it will travel, the chance of human injury or damage to manmade objects, the frequency of landslides in a certain area, and the impact of future climatic change.
This research was carried out due to a World Bank project on losses and insurance costs relating to disasters in Romania, and aims to provide a unitary basis for addressing landslide hazards in the country. It takes into account the most important triggering factors, as well as settlements and infrastructure affected by landslides. It also forms the basis for elaboration of a landslide-hazard risk map in an attempt to quantify all potential losses related to this process.
