LOCATION OF FUEL STATIONS USING FUZZY MODEL IN GEOSPATIAL INFORMATION SYSTEM (CASE STUDY: 7TH DISTRICT, TEHRAN CITY)
Keywords: Fuel Station, Fuzzy Model, GIS, Tehran City
Abstract. In this study, by using the fuzzy method and geospatial information system (GIS), was attempted to locate the fuel station in the 7th district of Tehran. For this purpose, the information was digitized as a shape file by referring to the field and using the existing maps. The distance map was prepared using the Euclidean Distance function. Finally, using ArcGIS 10.8 software, this information was normalized by the fuzzy method and overlapped using the fuzzy gamma operator. It is presented as a map of prone areas for optimal positioning of fuel stations in the 7th district of Tehran. The most important criteria are the distance from the communication network, population density, incompatible users (commercial, industrial, administrative, residential, cultural and religious, health and medical), compatible users (park and green space, sports, fire department), and distance from fuel stations.
