Landform is a feature of land or landscape, the establishment of which is formed by natural processes that can be described and defined by index feature, and if detected, the landformprovidesinformation aboutits own structure along with its composition, texture, or integration. The existence of landforms variety and their diversity are mainly controlled by the change inthe shape and the position of the Earth. Therefore, the classification and identification of different areas with regard to their morphological characteristics is essential. This research attempts to classify different landforms in the southern city of Darab. This research is Descriptive-analytical based on quantitative, field, software and modeling methods in which the Topographic Position Index (TPI) method was used for the identification and classification of landforms of the study area. The input data in this model includes slope, transverse curvature, minimum and maximum curvatures. The results of the morphological classification of the study region showed that the region includes 10 types of landform (waterway, valleys of middle waterways, high drains, upstream, u-shaped valleys, small plains, open slopes, upper slopes, elevated ridges, middle slope ridges, mountain peaks). Most of the landform types in the study area are related to the waterways (32/19 %) and then, the peaks (25/36 %).
