Slope Information System

Slope Information System (SIS) A computerized Slope Information System (SIS) has been developed to allow the public to have instant access to the information on all registered man-made slopes in Hong Kong.This information system is the first of its kind in the world. The SIS is now accessible via Internet through The Hong Kong Slope Safety (HKSS) Website (

The SIS consists of a graphical part showing locations of slopes, landslides and ground investigation records linked to a textual and image database. Other graphical layers include geological maps, development boundaries, and landslip preventive measures status, and these layers allow integration of different slope data under one system. A user friendly interface has been designed to allow easy retrieval of slope information from the system by geotechnical practitioners and the public.
