Description

Data set created by Jannes Muenchow, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. These data should be cited as Muenchow et al. (2012) (see reference below). This publication also contains additional information on data collection and the geomorphology of the area. The data set provded here is (a subset of) the one from the 'natural' part of the RBSF area and corresponds to landslide distribution in the year 2000.

Format

a data.frame with point samples of landslide and non-landslide locations in a study area in the Andes of southern Ecuador.
