r.slope.stability aims at creating a free and innovative software supporting experts in identifying areas susceptible to different types of slope failures.

The project

The initiative

r.slope.stability is a common initiative including scientists from Austrian and Italian universities and research institutes. Explore the philosophies and rationales of the initiative and learn more about its logical framework and the desired outcomes.

The software

The software

r.slope.stability is open source, distributed under the GNU General Public Licence. It builds on GRASS GIS and the R Project for Statistical Computing. Learn more about the software requirements and download the latest releases of the r.slope.stability software and manuals.

The team

The team

r.slope.stability builds on a group of experts in geomorphology, landslide research, geotechnical engineering and geoinformation sciences.

The model results

The model results

r.slope.stability contains built-in functions for visualizing the simulation results. These functions enable a rapid evaluation of the model outcomes without the need for manual post processing. Explore the results by viewing animated maps and profiles derived from selected model runs.

The test area

The test area

r.slope.stability is evaluated for the Collazzone Area in Umbria, central Italy. Besides a detailed landslide inventory, lithological and geotechnical data are available for this well-surveyed study area.

The scientific outcomes

The scientific outcomes

r.slope.stability, including all its aspects, is documented in depth through scientific articles published in highly-ranked international journals. The key concepts and findings of the initiative are presented at intenational conferences.
