Central America: Total length of major roads exposed to high and very high landslide susceptibility

The intention of this map is to give a quick overview for decision makers on a supra-regional, national or subnational level about the risk exposure of the road network to ‘high’ and ‘very high’ landslide susceptibility. The classification used here runs from yellow (few kilometers exposed) to red (many kilometers exposed). The class width of the yellow-to-red division has been chosen to facilitate the visual representation of the variability of values obtained in the assessment. White colored Municipios don’t have surveyed roads exposed to ‘high’ and ‘very high’ landslide prone areas or the landslide hazard is not relevant, either.
