The Landslide Hazard Zonation project was conceived as part of the unstable slopes rule strategy of the Forests and Fish Report dated July, 1999.
Description:
Abstract:
The Hazone coverage is a compilation of all known landslide hazard zones (also known as mass wasting map units) in the state of Washington. These have been compiled from previously existing watershed analyses, public, tribal, and private assessments, as well as incorporating data from the landslide hazard zonation project (LHZ), as these LHZ assessments become available. It has one related table Haz_Src_dat, related by the item Haz_src_id.
Purpose:
To provide a screening tool that identifies the known landslide hazards for the state of Washington, to eliminate the error of omission in the identification of unstable slopes. To support the needs of the Landslide Hazard Zonation project, as well as to provide and ongoing, supported platform to place landslide hazard area information that is regularly collected by a variety of agencies, both public and private.
Supplemental_Information:
This dataset is intended for us in land management, planning, regulation, research, and monitoring. For a complete picture of landslide hazard, this dataset (areas that produce landslide hazard) should be used in conjunction with the statewide landslide inventory (LSI) of known landslide locations.

Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source: LHZ mapping protocol and the experience of the author
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: U
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
it is not known if the analyst compared the field data with the Geologic data
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source:
During the compilation of other people's work (i.e. non-LHZ), not all analysts provided digital information on the lithology of individual mass wastin map units. As time permits, these null values will be populated, based on information from the watershed analysis.

Attribute_Definition:
Landslide Area Rating (Landslide Area Rate for Delivery): a measure of the area of landslides per unit area of landform. One value is assigned to all polygons of a unique landform.
Attribute_Definition_Source: Landslide Hazard Zonation Mapping Protocol
Attribute_Domain_Values:
Range_Domain:
Range_Domain_Minimum: 0
Range_Domain_Maximum: 99999
Attribute_Units_of_Measure: area of landslides per unit area, calculated by the mapper

Attribute_Value_Accuracy_Explanation:
this attribute is only given to areas mapped using the LHZ protocol. it is highly sensitive to the numbers of landslides mapped, regardless of size. The ability to see more landslides has the effect of increasing the LDR.
