AbstractThis research dealt with the impact of urban geomorphology in the morphological evolution of the Qaaem city, depending on modern technologies such as remote sensing and geographic information systems, it show that a larger role in the detection of and follow-up, analysis and interpretation of the evolution of the city and its extension. If the comparative study between the emergence of the city in the position and development of the site, which has grown and expanded it by relying on a set of indicators that altered by the researcher to suit the nature of the study within the time periods that have been identified since the beginnings emergence of the city until 2017, it was found that the city took it extends longitudinally in parallel with river to the presence of natural determinants represented topography western plateau, taking advantage of the few territories, decline in the construction of housing units on them, as the study found that urban factor in the expansion of the city of index of population growth and economic index and the index of administrative is influential elder primarily the behavior of urban sprawl into the ground units.
