Disclaimers Although care has been taken in developing and testing SINMAP, errors and inadequacies may still occur, particularly in new applications. A user must therefore make the final evaluation as to the usefulness of SINMAP for his/her application. SINMAP is a tool to be used by investigators who have some knowledge and experience concerning landslide behaviour. It requires engineering judgement and common sense in developing input parameters and interpretation of the results. In making these judgements the user should understand the concepts and limitations of the SINMAP theory presented in this document. This understanding should include a comprehension of the geomorphic processes which the program is attempting to model and the model's limitations. Finally, the user should be aware of the accuracy limitations of the DEM, soil, and hydrologic data used as input for these analyses. The authors of SINMAP assume no liability or responsibility for the use of SINMAP, the interpretation of SINMAP results, or the consequences of management decisions that are based upon SINMAP. In no event shall the authors be liable for any damages whatsoever arising out of the use, or attempts to use SINMAP.
