The purpose of this study is to investigate the changes in the land use of Amol at the time of 1986-2020. The effect of stimulant factors in the growth of the city determines that population and immigration from villages are considered as the most important factors in the growth of Amol city. Also, in the process of formation of the tissue of Amol, the primary core of the city after Islam has had a major role. The study of its growth process after the first Pahlavi shows that development of roads and commercial land uses distribution, especially around the main ways are another stimulant agent in the urban growth of Amol which also forms the pattern and form of growth in Amol city. The data provided from satellite imagery clearly identifies the growth of Amol from 1986 to 2020. The built-in area shows an annual increase of 15% (135 hectares per year). The expansion of the city has occurred in all respects, but it is more obvious along the main road to the nearby villages. Business/ service areas have been established along the roads which show the rapid decline in agricultural lands and vegetable areas. Also, changes in agriculture in Amol and in rural settlements merged in the city and the central part of Amol city is seen under the influence of urban expansion and development.
