Gravitational phenomena are one of the most common geomorphological hazards that mainly affect mountain, hilly and submarine environments, but also lowland environments where sinkhole phenomena occur. Landslides are responsible for serious and extensive damage to the anthropic and natural goods and cause numerous victims every year all over the world. In fact, these are included among the most frequent and widespread geological hazards that cause a great economic loss, both in terms of damage and in terms of cost for the prevention and mitigation of the hazard and risk associated with these phenomena.
There are many types of landslides with very different characteristics and behaviors whose predisposing and triggering causes are equally numerous and diversified. For this reason, landslide research is divided into several fields of investigation aimed at understanding their characteristics, trigger mechanisms and evolution.
The first step in studying landslides is to identify them in the area by mapping them via traditional methodologies, such as geomorphological surveys and aerial photo interpretation, or through the most modern remote sensing techniques.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to collect scientific works aimed at mapping landslides and the applications that derive from them, such as the production of inventory maps, susceptibility maps, hazard/risk maps, urban planning, and the development of tools in a GIS environment aimed at collecting, processing, analysis, visualization and dissemination of landslide data.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. GeoHazards is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
