The aim of this study is to compare the landslide susceptibility mapping models of logistic regression (LR), analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and frequency ratio (FR) applied in the central Zab basin (West Azerbaijan—Iran). Eight factors were used for landslide susceptibility mapping including slope, aspect, land cover, precipitation, lithology and the distance to roads, drainage, and faults that affect the occurrence of landslides. GIS tools and satellite images (Landsat ETM + and SPOT 5) are also used to prepare for land use and landslide-inventory mapping respectively. The results indicate that the LR and FR models are relatively good estimators of landslide susceptibility in the study area. The interpretations of the susceptibility map reveal that precipitation, lithology and slope played major roles in landslide occurrence and distribution in the central Zab basin
