Landslide Inventory of Illinois

Abstract: This is a digital version of Plate 1 of ISGS Circular 534. This coverage shows
polygon locations of landslides in Illinois. Features are described as earth
slumps, slumps on bedrock, rock creep, and flows. In cooperation with the USGS
these areas were classified according to Varnes (1978). Smaller landslides are
depicted as points in the companion coverage LNDSLD85-PT.

This inventory is intended to identify, map, and classify known landslides and
landslide prone areas in Illinois.
