Today, there are probably few people not familiar with the technology of Geographic Information System or GIS. This technique has existed since the 1970s and following the introduction of hardware facilities into the world of science and technology, and was then used in the Canadian Department of Natural Resources Management and Planning. With the arrival of new facilities, which gave computers a legendary speed and capacity compared to their ancestors, a huge progress has occurred in this area so that utilization of GIS, or spatial information management, has entered different fields: vast arenas of natural resources including forests, pastures and water resources (such as the oceans, seas and lakes), and even the smallest parts of human life such as homes and cars.
Considering the widespread application of this technique, whose scientific and theoretical aspects have overtaken its technical dimension, and the need of the enthusiasts to be aware of the advancements in this field, this paper, under the title “The Consortium of GIS Application for Water Resources with the Aim of Designing Object-Oriented Models” is translated from the source ARC News Vol.21 No.4-Winter: 199/2000; hopefully it will be useful for interested people.
