The use of remote sensing data for land use planning and engineering purposes in the UK has accelerated with increasing availability. High resolution LiDAR models, commonly avalaible as O.2Smm resolution data, is becoming standard practice for detailed landslide hazard assessment studies. This new generation of high precision data, coupled with developments in pointcloud visualisation software with remote mapping functionality, is providing engineering geologists and engineering geomorphologists with a powerful new set of tools for landslide identification and feature interpreatation for applied geological mapping purposes. We present two recent case studies of landslide hazard characterisation and zonation from two UK Jurassic escarpments, in North Yorkshire and the Cotswolds. The ability to map UK landslides through typical UK forest cover and the use of LiDAR for developing landslide hazard susceptibility models at various scales is also discussed with examples from Yorkshire.
