Short summary
The main contributions of this manuscript are • A novel and easy to use ArcMap tool is proposed for bivariate statistical analysis model implementation. • The developed tool facilitated and sped up the BSA modelling process of frequency ratio, weights of evidence, and evidential belief function. • This tool classifies the variables based on the acquired weights automatically. • All three methods were tested on a study area and landslide susceptibility maps were produced.
