Isopleth maps derived from landslide inventory maps generalize and quantify the areal distribution of landslide deposits in contour form and may be uniquely useful for some types of regional planning. The isopleth format permits incorporation of landslide information with other quantified map data in the preparation of slope stability maps. The isopleth map of landslide deposits in San Mateo County, California (scale 1:300,000), serves as an example of this technique.
