AbstractLandslides are a recurring geomorphological process in high mountainous areas like Valemount (Canadian Rocky Mountains, British Columbia). The compilation of detailed information about the spatial distribution and characteristics of past landslides is essential for assessing future potential hazards. To provide baseline geoscience information to stakeholders and decision-makers, we carried out a landslide inventory that covers roughly 1200 km2. Using visual interpretation of aerial orthophotos, a digital elevation model of 5x5 meter resolution and satellite imagery, we compiled up to 1286 landslides and classified each into 12 categories and three confidence levels. The current paper describes the mapping methodology and summarizes our results.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is a map compilation of different types of landslide north of Valemount, British Columbia. The corridor covers roughly 1200 km2 and where approximately 1300 landslides were observed.
