Methodology was developed for estimation of geohazard induced by mass movement processes, taking the Bovec municipality as the case study area. The geohazard map in scale 1:25.000 as the final product is aimed to be directly applicable in spatial planning of local communities (municipalities). The requirements that were followed to achieve this aim were: expert correctness, reasonable time of elaboration, and easy to read product.Elaboration of the final product comprises four consecutive phases, of which the first three are done in the office: 1) synthesis of archive data, 2) probabilistic model of geohazard induced by mass movement processes, 3) compilation of phases 1 and 2 into the final map in scale 1:25.000. As the last phase, field reconnaissance of most hazardous areas is foreseen.
