Landslide processes that occur on the slopes of different genesis and morphology are considered to be the most active factors of influence on natural and man-made systems and infrastructure objects. Each of the landslide processes requires special approaches to their modeling and forecasting, which are determined by geological models of the slope and the process. Landslides of the Middle Dnipro region have different factors of the formation and structure of landslides due to different lithological, stratigraphic, tectonic and hydrogeological conditions. The landslides within this region are examples of the structural landslides forming in a quasi-homogeneous environment with a layered structure. The integral map was created using the method of overlay transformations of the matrix data model, which enables simultaneous consideration of the given factors, obtaining the new spatial information about the landslide hazard assessment. Susceptibility model of landslide hazards within Kyiv region has been developed. The development of this model was based on in-depth geological analysis of the geological environment and the determination of the parameters and characteristics of processes that differ depending on the rheological state of the geological environment and the corresponding geological structure of the slopes.
