This dataset combines two GAR13 rasters to produce an estimate of the annual frequency of landslides triggered by precipitation and earthquakes. The original datasets depend on the combination of trigger and susceptibility defined by six parameters: slope factor, lithological (or geological) conditions, soil moisture condition, vegetation cover, precipitation and seismic conditions. Preprocessing has been undertaken to classify these estimates into a Hazard Classification (1= Very Low, 2= Low, 3= Medium, 4=High). This product was designed by International Centre for Geohazards /NGI for the Global Assessment Report on Risk Reduction (GAR). It was modeled using global data.
