Significant economic losses are associated with landslides, and Utah has numerous landslides and landslide-prone geologic units. Exposure to landslide hazards increases as development expands onto hillsides and other landslide-prone areas. To improve the understanding of landslides and their distribution throughout Utah, we used a geographic information system (GIS) to compile previously mapped landslides throughout Utah. The result consists of 46 1:100,000-scale landslides maps that include over 22,000 landslide deposits in addition to landslide scarps and debris-flow travel paths throughout the state. All 46 maps and an accompanying 14-page report are included on this DVD. This study will aid in land-use planning by identifying areas susceptible to landslide movement that require site-specific geologic-hazard and geotechnical investigations prior to development.
