The 2009 fatal landslide map

This post presents the data from the Durham University Fatal Landslide database for 2009. This is a map of fatal landslides only with each red dot representing a single landslide recorded on the database.

From the above map it is apparent that we live in one of the most hazardous areas in the world as regards landslides, yet nothing much has changed
... so I am pretty much sure that next year we will have yet another map (of 2010 obviously) with those red dots all around us. What a pity!
