I. Abstract

    The objective of this collection is to build better inventories of 
landslides through citizen participation. This project will make it 
possible for the public to report their observations of landslides on a 
USGS-hosted Web site. The information gathered through the on-line 
database will be used to classify the landslides and damage, as well as 
provide information to scientists about the location, time, speed, and 
size of the landslides. The USGS Landslide Hazards Program has 
developed an interactive Web site for public reporting of landslides.
