Mapping Where The Earth Tends To Slide


Don't get excited by the term "SLIDO," it is NOT one of those little hamburgers (that's a slider). 

SLIDO is the Statewide Landslide Information Layer for Oregon, and a pretty good acronym for a program that keeps track of landslides. 

The rains of this winter showed us what can happen when the earth slides--like on several Douglas County roads--and the SLIDO maps show where slides can happen and have. 

The state Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) runs the SLIDO program.  DOGAMI Chief Scientist and SLIDO co-author Ian Madin is our guest.
