The British Geological Survey (BGS) has developed a multi-stage methodology for landslide mapping by augmenting traditional mapping techniques with new geospatial technologies. This allows better characterisation and understanding of the country’s landslides: an essential requirement for landslide susceptibility modelling, risk assessment and resilient infrastructure planning. The BGS methodology has most recently been applied to the North York Moors National Park in northern England, UK: an area with steep slopes, landslide-prone lithologies and an exposed coastal section but few recorded landslide events. Over 550 landslides have now been identified and data on the characteristics and mechanisms of these have been used to inform hazard assessments and susceptibility modelling research including the National Landslide Database, the National Landslide Domains Map and the National Geohazard Assessment.
