There has been a limited amount of research focused on the design of landslide maps, which are considered as one of the potential means to communicate disaster risks to the public. Hence, this article aims to conduct a systematic review of the process involved in creating landslide maps specifically for the purpose of disaster risk communication with non-expert users. While this topic is still under-studied, it has gained increasing coverage in the peer-reviewed literature over the past five years. The review examines the variations in the process of creating landslide maps, considering aspects such as planning, mapping techniques, presentation, and dissemination. However, there are several areas that require improvement, including diversifying the types of maps, considering the role and involvement of users, developing more user-friendly designs, and reducing reliance on experts during the dissemination process. The findings of this review provide valuable insights into the current limitations in establishing these maps and offer guidance for future research in this field.
