Description:
Abstract:
The LSI coverage is an Inventory of Landslides (Also Known As Mass Wasting Events). It has three related data tables: lsi_data, related by lsi_uniqid; lsi_src_dat; related through the lsi_data by source_idno; and lsi_dispute_dat (latter dataset currently unpopulated), related by lsi_uniqid.
Purpose:
To support the Landslide Hazard Zonation project, as well as to provide an ongoing, supported platform to place landslide information that is regularly collected by a variety of agencies, both public and private.
Supplemental_Information:
This dataset is intended for use in land management, planning, regulation, research and monitoring.

Data_Set_Credit:
Boyd and Vaugeois, 2003, On the Development of a Landslide Inventory, Geological Society of America Annual Meeting The WA-DNR initiated work on this project in 1999 by acquiring existing data and developing standardized data architectures for data compilation. The project received funding from an Interagency Contract. All available landslide inventories and mass wasting map units from watershed analysis were collected from the various landowners. Landslide inventories were also gathered from other agencies collecting this data outside the T/F/W watershed analysis arena, such as the USFS, tribal entities, and universities.

This data is a compilation of many different landslide datasets from a variety of authors, collecting information for several different purposes. Information on the sources of the various datasets are in the related table lsi_src_dat that is bundled with the dataset.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
the compilation involved taking a variety of disparate data sources and normalizing them to a standard data architecture. current updates to the dataset involve using arcgis 8.x to spatially update (add or amend) the LSI coverage. Tolerances have been set at: dangle = 0, nodesnap, weed, and grain = 0.1, and snap = 1.
