Project Information

Main goal of this project, which was initiated by the Bavarian Environment Agency, is the improvement of the understanding between the different geological experts in the European alpine countries. These communication problems in dealing with landslides are traditional caused by different usage of terms and various classifications used in the several countries. The project is structured into a technical and textual part. The technical part includes the creation of a relational database model, which will be linked to the internet (online glossary). In the second part the content for the database is developed. This multilingual glossary (German, English, Italian, Spanish, French, Slovene) consists of terms and definitions to landslides and to different maps (Hazard- and Danger maps).
