With the acceleration of the ‘globalization’ process, especially the "globalization of the economy," a group of scholars made new theories and argued that the process of globalization has eliminated the importance of "locations", and the "distance and boundaries" are no longer meaningful. With the acceleration of the process of globalization, especially the "globalization of the economy," a group of scholars have made new theories and argued that the globalization process eliminated the importance of "places", and "distance and boundaries" have no meanings any longer. They claimed (geography no longer exists) and "geographic maps" are not so effective in the new world. In response to these comments, many geographers have conducted a series of critical researches and compilation of articles criticizing this claim. One of these is the preparation of "new geopolitical maps”.In this research, a descriptive-analytical method and, library and computer resources were used to see what impact the globalization has had on geopolitical map and whether globalization has diminished the role of geography and political maps. As we know, cities in the globalization arena, took on new roles outside their political boundaries, and sometimes found their importance beyond their own governments. Instead of focusing on the countries and real boundaries, "new geopolitical maps" have moved towards maps that take the "urban relations" into consideration and in which, real boundaries are not so important. In this regard, some valuable works have been done, one of which is the work of Taylor and his colleagues. The "new geopolitical maps" focus on communication between cities around the world. Mapping the communications of cities around the world contributes to a new representation of the "space of global economic flows" that complements the "international political space of locations" rather than replacing it. In other words, new maps of the economic flows of global cities are only supplement to the international political map of countries that provide an appropriate space framework for understanding the new social changes under globalization conditions.
