Bio-environmental quality Quality of life in Tehran.Tehran Municipality ICT Organization is proud to publish a new version of Tehran metropolis Atlas in line with one of its main responsibilities, which is disseminating information to the public especially information about the city of Tehran. The atlas has been prepared collaboration with a group of professors in University of Tehran and experts of Tehran Municipality. Compared to the previous atlases, this new edition presents more detailed information, which makes it possible for researchers and experts from various fields to dig more detailed information. Also, the atlas offers the latest urban changes in the form of maps, charts, tables and images, presenting a clearer image of Tehran metropolis.Atlas of Tehran metropolis has been prepared in a way that can be used by a broad range of general and specialist readers. In designing and cartography, we have used concepts and methods that, though specialized, are accessible to general readers as well. The explanations of indexes and the initial analyses provided are meant to help general readers. The Atlas can appeal to Tehran citizens because it describes the situation of each neighborhood and the general condition of the city based on various indexes and from various dimensions. In fact, each map provides an index for each area. We have tried to present a brief analysis with each map so that the situation of the city could be understood from the map itself. Also, we have avoided any value judgment and personal opinion about the indexes. As stated before. Atlas of Tehran metropolis is a research-applied one, using various scientific indexes. It can thus be useful for the people interested in urban developments in Tehran and the scholars who do research on urban issues. The guide to the indexes presented in the maps is often in quantitative terms so that the latter group may use the data and, if necessary, use the outputs of the analysis.Maybe the most important aspect of this applied atlas is that it presents to planners and urban managers of Tehran a visual-analytic picture of the present status and the past situation of the city. It enables them to clearly understand the existing spatial differences and make more appropriate decisions about the challenges and the weaknesses and strengths of the city in various areas. To produce the Atlas, a scientific council adopted general policies and principles, defined the chapters, identified methods of offering information and determined the specialist committees. To put the project into operation, ten specialist committees were formed, each responsible for one chapter of the Atlas. The responsibility of each committee was assigned to an authority in the field so that they can use the services of other specialists. Also, another specialist committee was formed to manage manners of offering spatial information and making models for spatial data. However, to boost the quality of the output even more, an attempt was made to use the expertise of other specialists in addition to the members of the specialist committees. To this end, several specialists meetings were held attended by committee members and other specialists from the related fields.
