The web map application is a pilot project to display Oregon landslide data in an accessible way for the public. The map is not intended to be used for site specific planning. It may be used as a general guide for emergency response planning. Maps in this publication depict landslide hazard areas on the basis of limited data as described further in the text. The maps cannot serve as a substitute for site-specific investigations by qualified practitioners. Site-specific data may give results that differ from those shown on the maps.

SLIDO is a work in progress. DOGAMI reserves the right to update data on this web site without notification as new information becomes available.

Users should use caution when overlaying other data sets and should not make legally binding decisions from this data. These data are subject to change. Acknowledgment of the USGS/DOGAMI would be appreciated in products derived from these data. Any person using the information presented here should fully understand the data collection and compilation process before beginning their analysis/use. The burden of determining fitness for use lies with the user.        

To avoid the risk of misinterpretation, invalid results, and erroneous conclusions, users must consider original map scale, collection methodology, currency of data, and any other conditions specific to every data element and each dataset as a whole. Potential users are advised to consult with DOGAMI to gain an understanding of the inherent limitations of this data set and its scope of inference. Also, the user must be aware that errors and conditions originating from physical sources involved in developing a dataset may be reflected in the data and that the digital processing performed during preparation, storage, and transmission of the dataset may have exacerbated such errors and/or introduced additional ones.
