A systematic inventory of landslide events over regional spatial scales and through time is required for investigating changes in landslide frequency along-side changes in landslide triggers. This paper describes the methods used to compile a European-wide landslide inventory and some of the methodological and practical obstacles that inhibit better use and development of such inventories. We argue that these methods can be used more widely to provide a comprehensive picture of landslide populations and to further enrich our understanding of the impact of climate change and other drivers on landslide frequency and magnitude.
