Relevant data fields include the mineral commodities present at the site, project name, project type, operator, owners of the site, geographic coordinates, and locational accuracy.

We present an inventory of the initiation locations of landslides triggered by the passage of Hurricane Mitch, October 21-31, 1998 in seven study areas in Nicaragua. The inventory was compiled from aerial photographs and field mapping. Most (perhaps 95%) of the landslides at the mapped initiation locations produced debris flows. The remaining 5% of mapped initiation locations were slow-moving earth flows that started moving during Hurricane Mitch and continued to move for at least one year.
