Undoubtedly, applied geography plays a significant role as a dynamic science in all land development and planning programs. The intellectual transformations of contemporary geographers on the role of geography and its application in the development of different regions do not leave concern for experts in various fields, because in the opinion of geographers the various natural and human phenomena on the earth's surface have complex interactions, each of which requires recognition of other phenomena and estimation of possible interactions among them. In addition, multi-dimensional view of geographers and their study of phenomena in different aspects have guided them in their attempts to solve the urban, rural and nomadic problems. Therefore, the geographer considers the compatibility of rural development programs with the geographical features of rural space, so that the geographical and economic landscape of the area is not damaged.
It should be noted that the physical development of villages is only part of the rural development process; its main lines are depicted in the form of physical changes in villages.
