Central America: Total length of major roads exposed to landslide susceptibility (high, very high) and seismic hazard (medium-very high)

The intention of this map is to give a quick overview for decision makers on national or regional level about the risk exposure of the road network to ‘high’ and ‘very high’ landslide susceptibility and ‘medium - very high’ seismic hazard. 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.
