Abstract
Earthquake is of the inevitable natural hazards in Iran that cause lots of damages and problems to the economy and human lives. One of the new advanced Technologies and Sciences which can strongly save human lives and their properties with suitable earthquake management is Geospatial Information System (GIS). Therefore, in this study we are designing a GIS System for decreasing earthquake disaster effects in Iran. With respect to investigation and studies in needs assessment step, the result have been introduced as required data, data infrastructure, format, structuring method, classification of these data and required analysis. At last next steps for developing this GIS system are discussed.
