Landslides are one of the most damaging geological hazards worldwide, threating both humans and property. Hence, there have been many effortsto prevent landslides and mitigate the damage that they cause.Among such efforts, there have been many studies on mapping landslide susceptibility. Geographic information system (GIS)-based techniques have been developed and applied widely, and are now the main tools used to map landslide susceptibility. We reviewed the status of landslide susceptibility mapping using GIS by number of papers, year, study area, number of landslides, cause, and models applied, based on 776 articles over the last 20 years (1999– 2018).
