Overview of attributes

Version 1.0 of the Preliminary Soil-Slip Susceptibility Maps,
Southwestern California comprises seven ARC/INFO grids, la_sus,
lb_sus, ocs_sus, sbern_sus, sd_sus, sa_sus, sbarb_sus, which
contain soil-slip susceptibility values.

*.vat

Susceptibility values identified in each of the seven mapped areas (the Santa Barbara 100K sheet, the Los Angeles 100K sheet, the south half of the San Bernardino 100K sheet, the Long Beach 100K sheet, the Santa Ana 100K sheet, the Oceanside 100K sheet, and the San Diego and western El Cajon 100K sheets)

Label Definition
suscode Number corresponding to a susceptibility. Generally, the numbers can be interpreted as follows: > 6 through 999: low susceptibility > 1000 through 3250: moderate susceptibility > 3251 through 5000: high susceptibility
