Landslides and erosion processes have profound impact in the design and construction of civil works. Lithology and vegetation covering could be affected by extreme water accumulation inducing high instability in the landscape. The geoprocessing and the Geographic Information System are technics which allow to recognize vulnerable areas to landslides or erosion. This knowledge is a very good support in order to take decisions for developing engineering projects.
