Six indicators (distance from the fault, the Aras river privacy, water studied privacy, land formation, land erosion and slope) were considered and produced. After defining the parameters, according to the research using AHP, by weighting each indicator in ArcGIS software capabilities in order to combine the indicators. The zoning map for urban development was obtained and evaluated.
