Today, supplying water to meet the sustainable development goals is one of the most important concerns and challenges in most countries. Therefore, identification of the areas with groundwater potential is an important tool for conservation, management and exploitation of water resources. The purpose of this research was to prepare the potential groundwater map in Nahavand, Hamedan Province, using the weight of evidence model and combining it with logistic regression. For this purpose,  the information layers of slope angle, slope aspect, slope length, altitude, plan curvature, profile curvature, TWI, SPI, distance from fault, fault density, distance from river, drainage density, lithology and land use were identified as the  factors affecting groundwater potential and digitized in the ArcGIS software. After designing the groundwater potential map with these three methods, ROCs were used to evaluate the results. Of 273 springs identified in this study, 191 (70%) were used to prepare the groundwater potential map and 82 springs (30%) were used to evaluate the model. The area under curve (AUC) obtained from the ROC curve showed an accuracy of 80.4% for the weight of evidence model and 82.5% for the weight of the evidence- regression combined model
