Short summary
Kerala in India was subjected to an extreme rainfall event in the monsoon season of 2018 which triggered extensive floods and landslides. In order to study whether the landslides were related to recent land use changes, we generated an accurate and almost complete landslide inventory based on two existing datasets and the detailed interpretation of images from the Google Earth platform. The final dataset contains 4728 landslides with attributes of land use in 2010 and land use in 2018.
