5 Conclusions Urban expansion model has been implemented in this paper which takes advantage of GIS, LR and RS based on the utilization of a variety of social and environmental factors. LR modeling was used to identify and improve our understanding of the demographic, econometric and biophysical forces that have drive urban expansion and to find the most probable sites of urban expansion in SMA of Iran. LR model examines the relationship between predictor variables as inputs and urban/nonurban areas as outputs to model urban expansion.

2009) created when simulated and observed maps are compared. Model validation using ROC reported a summary ROC value, a ROC curve as well as the coordinates of the points on the curves that were used to calculate the ROC value. 0. A non-parametric approximation using SPSS (SPSS Inc, 2003) is used here to estimate the area under the curve produced by varying the threshold and plotting numerous thresholds and resultant values of specificity and sensitivity. 4 Prediction The probability map can be used for producing maps of urban distribution if any quantitative data on the future total areas of urban distribution, for example, urban planning data, are given.

Two Landsat TM images of SMA in 1988 and 2000 were rectified and registered to Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) WGS 1984 zone 39 N. Supervised classification was used to classify the images to different land use categories. In addition three and two land use classes that were extracted from the first and the second satellite images respectively, service centres were obtained from county road maps stored as point coverage; two other classes were added from a topographic data at a scale of 1:50,000.
