The goal of the project was to install a permanent monitoring and early warning system to track the evolution of the Maca landslides, located in a high seismicity region (next to Arequipa, Peru). The landslides threatens a village of 900 inhabitants, a very popular and frequented road (500,000 vehicles/year), and pre-Inca terraces, and is subject to rapid acceleration due either to the high seismicity of the area or to periods of intense rainfalls.
