Identifying the geographical features of the country constitutes the basis for public awareness of the environment. Furthermore, it provides the essential scientific foundation for young people and the decision-making officials with cultural, social, economic, and political knowledge. Comprehensive Geography of Iran can be considered as the first effort for collective scientific work in Iran in the field of geography.
The preparation for compiling the Comprehensive Geography of Iran was chiefly based on the following objectives:
In this series, various topics are organized in a continuous and interrelated manner, while maintaining thematic independence. The titles are as follows:
Volume One: Characteristics of the Natural Environment of Iran
Volume Two: Historical Political Characteristics and Population
Volume Three: Administrative Division: Provinces
Volume Four: Lifestyles and Human Settlements
