The increasing development of urban community under the influence of irregular
growth population and immigrations, leading to unplanned constructions and its
uncontrolled expansion brought about many changes in the spatial structures of urban,
This overall changes in its turn require more than ever informed direction, substantial
organization and suitable spatial design. On the other hand, the fundament social,
cultural and economical changes are seeking an extensive transformation in the spatial
structure of environmental complexes. Certainly, such changes can not advance
without effective planning and guidance of urban developers.
Urban and regional planners advocating formulating and regulating plans and
adopting policies need continuous acquisition of information. Urban planning and
designing from perception to designing and implementing urban plans need correct,
precise , rapid and up-to-date information of local, urban and region.
So far, cartographical elements (such as graph, histogram, map, photo, aerial
photo, satellite image and geographical information system) acted as a basic tool for
securing correct, precise and up to date information leading to better understanding of
urban and regional potentialities, trends of urban planning and designing and finally
providing an accepted image for urban .
Over the recent years, cartographic knowledge, which is influenced by
electronic, satellite and automation has been on the threshold of a fundamental change
and in addition to its determining role of simulation, it has transformed into a unique
technique in modeling (designing for future) for the purpose of designing and planning
and testing of processes and analyzing the results prior to the implementation.
The aim of this article is conducting a research to explain the influence of
automation in changing the cartography and transforming it into an effective and
salient technique in urban and regional planning and presenting a suitable model.
