The relevant impact [1] that landslide geo-hazards may have on society in terms of human lives and economic losses, has resulted in great efforts to develop sustainable solutions to deal with their prediction and mitigation. To date, several aspects have been investigated involving geological and geo-statistical analysis, geotechnical modeling, design of effective mitigation and protection structures, and sensor development [2].
