Area involved in landsliding Incidence: greater than 15% = high 1.5-15% = medium less than 1.5% = low(Source: OFR-97-0289)
|COMBO-HIGH||Both incidence and susceptibility are high|
|INC-High||High incidence of landslides|
|INC-LOW||Low incidence of landslides|
|INC-MOD||Moderate incidence of landslides|
|SUS-HIGH||High susceptibility of landslides|
|SUS-MOD||Moderate susceptibility of landslides|
