Report of Investigations 35
Digital Landslide Inventory for the Cowlitz County Urban Corridor, Washington
version 1.0

by Karl W. Wegmann
2006

This report contains a digital, map-based, expandable geographic information systems (GIS) inventory and database for identified deep-seated and shallow landslides within the Cowlitz County urban corridor, extending from slightly north of the Toutle River south to the Cowlitz County–Clark County boundary, and encompassing primarily non-commercial timber lands on either side of Interstate Highway 5. The products of this study consist of a GIS inventory of landslides as ESRI shapefiles and associated metadata, digital photographs of individual landslides, 1:24,000-scale landslide inventory maps for 7.5-minute quadrangles in the inventory area, and a 24 p. text.

The inventory contains specific information about each landslide, such as: landslide type; slide dimensions; certainty that the mapped feature is a landslide; inferred state of activity derived from geomorphologic and engineering data; whether the slide was previously identified in geotechnical, landslide inventory, or geologic mapping reports; geologic unit(s) involved; and affected infrastructure. The inventory is publicly available, and is intended to be of use for a variety of state, county, and city land-use planning and development purposes. This inventory should be considered an initial baseline for future site-specific landslide-related studies. It is not intended to be detailed enough to replace site-specific investigations by qualified (licensed) geologists and engineering geologists.

This publication supersedes Report of Investigations 34.
