Space-based information:The Global Fatal Landslide Database (GFLD) has been consistently collected and maintained since 2004. Systematic metadata search tools based in the English language are used to identify relevant reports of landslide activity. Reports are corroborated and data updated by source triangulation using government and aid agency reports, academic papers and personal communications as new information becomes available. This version of the dataset contains all non-seismically triggered fatal landslide events from 2004 to 2016. A web platform is currently under development to host the full database openly and provide users with more functionality, including data download and crowd source reporting.
