Terrain control on the spatial distribution of landslides paths is the focus of this paper. Specifically,four terrain variables: elevation, slope aspect, gradient and form will be studied. The objectives of this research are to : a) examine the topographic characteristics of landslide paths; b) identify terrain variables significant to the spatial distribution of landslide paths; and c) ascertain the topographic settings conducive to landsliding at a local scale so that the spatial variation in rainfall intensity and geology can be approximated as contant. These objectives are to be achieved with the assistance of a DEM (Digital Elevation Model)
