In this study, topographic as well as rural texture parameters were analyzed in the form of spatial layers. For this purpose, a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) was first prepared and then, based on the classification of the land form parameters and overlaying them with the land use/land cover layer, the relationship of the physical parameters with the structural context of Malfe and Andargoli villages was analyzed. Finally, both compatible and non-compatible forms of exploitation of the natural bed of the two villages were identified. Furthermore, the results of this study suggest that GIS with the possibility of developing data can be an efficient tool in the process of rural and urban planning.
