About this mapping
The newly available updated information will be used by a number of cities and county agencies, such as the Office of Emergency Management and the Department of Transportation, to improve the delivery of services to residents. This information will also assist preparation of collaboratively developed regional plans for and responses to emergency situations. By providing updated information that is readily and easily accessed by the public, King County hopes to improve the public’s knowledge and awareness of potential hazards and risks posed by landslides. Landowners may seek to utilize this updated information to gain an improved understanding of the natural characteristics of their neighborhoods and also to take individual measures for self-preparedness.
