Table 4 Conversion table of categorical data from weights encoding to percentile discretization, and continuous data to percentiles

From: Landslide Susceptibility Mapping of Urban Areas: Logistic Regression and Sensitivity Analysis applied to Quito, Ecuador

Categorical Data Factors: Lithology
Land Use/Vegetation Coverage
Seismic intensities
Intense Precipitations
Soil Stability after former landslide events
Weights (Partial Susceptibilities) a: 1 2 3 4
Percentile Values: 1 33 67 100
Continuous Data Factors: Slope
Population
Road Density
Floor Area
Building Footprint Area
Weights (Partial Susceptibilities) b: 1 2 3 4
Percentile Values: Corresponding percentile (from 1 to 100)
  1. aAssigned according to FUNEPSA et al. (2015)
  2. bClassified by natural breaks, except for slope, classified according to FUNEPSA et al. (2015)
