Landslide locations and extents help us locate where landslides have occurred. Ireland's location, terrain and climate result in landslides occurring mainly in areas with steep slopes where rock meets the surface and peat covers the terrain. Landslides have the potential to cause great havoc, and have done so all around the world. They have resulted in loss of life and damage to infrastructure. Landslides can damage roads, railways, canal embankments, and cause dams to fail. They can destroy or severely damage buildings of all types – housing, commercial or industrial property. Rivers can become blocked or diverted by sediment or rock displaced by landslides. A map of landslide locations can be used when planning large scale infrastructure projects such as roads, wind farms and housing. Understanding where landslides can occur will help prevent future damage to any structures built. A landslide is the movement of material down a slope. This includes rock, earth, mud and peat. Landslides in Ireland mainly occur on steep mountain slopes. Geologists map and record information on where and when landslides happen and on the material that has moved. To produce this dataset landslides were mapped using digital imagery and mapping in the field. We collect new landslide location data and update the landslide location dataset every year. This is a vector dataset. Vector data portray the world using points, lines and polygons (area). The landslide location data is shown as points. Each point holds information about the landslide event, its date, its location, the type of landslide (topple, bogslide, flow), the type of material (peat, earth, rock) and the cause of the landslide (heavy rainfall). he landslide extent perimeter data is shown as polygons which is the area of the landslide. Each polygon holds information about the landslide event, its date, its location, the type of landslide (topple, bogslide, flow), the type of material (peat, earth, rock) and the cause of the landslide (heavy rainfall).

Provenance information The Landslides in Ireland publication featured two case studies of landslide susceptibility mapping for the Mayo and Breifne areas. In 2013 the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) completed a landslide susceptibility mapping project as part of the National Geoscience Programme 2007 - 2013. This project was one of the main recommendations made in the 2006 publication “Landslides in Ireland”. Engineering consultants Mouchel Ireland Ltd. were commissioned to carry out the susceptibility mapping on behalf of GSI. Further detailed information on this project can be found here The susceptibility model produced as a result of this project is currently being assessed for counties Mayo and Kerry. Trinity College Dublin (Earth & Planetary Surface Processes) have been contracted to carry out further inventory development for these counties which will be integrated into the model. It is envisaged that this will indicate the stability of the susceptibility model on which to develop National susceptibility coverage by 2014.
