This ongoing project is providing a comprehensive framework and understanding of landslide data for Kentucky. There is a wealth of landslide information, such as hard-copy maps, State agency reports, and digital databases, which originate from many different sources. The main goal is to compile this information into a standardized database and use the most important data to understand landslide hazards in Kentucky. Landslide locations from the inventory can be viewed in the Landslide Information Map.

KGS also cooperates with the U.S. Geological Survey and other state surveys to promote the importance of landslide inventory projects. Read more here: Landslide Inventory Project.
