Abstract—The industrial state site selection for urban and industrial equipment’s establishment is tied to some limiting and strengthening factors. Increasingly, the relationships between environmental concerns and industrial, social and political affairs as well as rapid growth of the potential changes rise up regional and local system’s complexity. The conditions of different areas in our country indicate that we should consider environmental planning topics more than previous. There are different methods for site selection however using multicriteria methods are more preferred. In this study we investigated about the second industrial area’s site selection in Germi where is located in the Ardebil province, in Iran. Totally seven criteria including average annual temperature, slope, water resources, roads, landuse, residential areas and geological fault, were mapped using Arc GIS 9.3. Meanwhile we used Analytical Hierarchical Process (AHP) for map’s weighting. The preferred areas were located after field work and software analysis and considering economic, social and environmental conditions such as land ownership value and access. Based on infrastructural facilities existence and short distance to Germi city, the first preference was selected.
