This dataset show landslide susceptibility for Puerto Rico, Vieques and Culebra Island.  The original paper map was published by Watson Monroe, USGS 1979.  The publication states also that almost all slopes greater than 50 percent have high risk of landsliding.  Due to limitations of that time, these areas were not mapped.
