Abstract. National and regional historical landslide databases are increasingly viewed as providing empirical evidence for the geomorphic effects of ongoing environmental change and for supporting adaptive territorial planning. In this work, we present the design and current content of the Czech Historical Landslide Database (CHILDA), the first of its kind for the territory of Czechia (the Czech Republic). We outline the CHILDA system, its functionality and technical solution. The database was established by merging and extending the fragmented regional datasets for highly landslide prone areas in Czechia. Currently, the database includes 699 records (619 landslides, 75 rockfalls, and 5 other movement types) encompassing the period from the oldest determined records (1132) up to 1989 which represents an important cultural, political and socioeconomic divide. Along with characterizing the content of the database, we discuss its further developments and applications.

Short summary
The online landslide database CHILDA (Czech historical landslide database) summarizes information about landslides which occurred in the area of Czechia (the Czech Republic). The database is freely accessible via the https://childa.cz/ website. It includes 699 records (spanning the 1132–1989 period). 55 % of all recorded landslide events occurred only within 15 years of the extreme landslide incidence.
