The landslides you report with Landslide Reporter are shared with you and the world. The Cooperative Open Online Landslide Repository (COOLR) is openly accessible on Landslide Viewer and can be downloaded or referenced using its API.
COOLR data is used to validate the Landslide Hazard Assessment for Situational Awareness (LHASA) model. LHASA identifies locations with high potential for landslides by combining satellite-based precipitation estimates with landslide susceptibility variables. When using COOLR or LHASA for your research, please use the citations below.
Citation for Report-Based Landslide Inventories:
Report-Based Landslide Inventories can be downloaded from a separate layer in the COOLR catalog named “nasa_coolr_reports”.
To use the citizen science data submitted through Landslide Reporter in your research publication, you can filter the layer using a definition query (event_import_source = “LRC”) and we request that you reference the publication below:
To use the NASA Global Landslide Catalog (GLC) in your research publication, you can filter the layer using a definition query (event_import_source = “GLC”) and we request that you reference the GLC using the publications below:
Citation for Event-Based Landslide Inventories:
Event-Based Landslide Inventories can be downloaded from separate layer in the COOLR catalog named “nasa_coolr_events”. You can further filter manual or automated landslides by using the following definition queries: method = “Manual” or method = “Automatic”.
If you use the Event-Based landslides in your research publication, we request you reference the inventories within the dataset. The citation for each event inventory is located within the attribute table field “citation”. Please reference each citation of the events used. For example, if you use the entire inventory layer, please reference all the event citations contained within the layer. If you use just the events past a certain date, or another subset of the layer, please query those citations out and reference those. In addition, a CSV containing all citations can be found on the download page: https://maps.nccs.nasa.gov/arcgis/apps/MapAndAppGallery/index.html?appid=574f26408683485799d02e857e5d9521
Citation for LHASA 2.0
If you use the LHASA 2.0 in your research publication, we request that you reference the publication below:
Citation for LHASA 1.1
If you use the LHASA 1.1 in your research publication, we request that you reference the publication below:

The forecast model is currently running four times per day, but the results are not yet visible on Landslide Viewer. Limited amounts of forecast data are available upon request.
The PFDF model is not currently running.
The Cooperative Open Online Landslide Inventory (COOLR) can be downloaded from Landslide Viewer by clicking on the link “Download Landslide Catalog” at the top of the application. A new window will open with the information for downloading the GLC and the option to save it to your computer as a file geodatabase (.gdb), shapefile (.shp), or comma-separated values (.csv) file. You can also create maps of the Landslide Viewer screen by screenshotting the current view. In the future, a “print” widget will be added to make creating maps of Landslide Viewer more seamless.
Here is a list of the inventories added to Landslide Viewer through their ArcGIS REST API. If you use any of these inventories, please check the respective websites for how to properly cite the data.
