On the 11th anniversary of the 1979 Revolution (Feb. 11, 1990), a map of the Islamic world in the size (70 * 100 centimeters), which represents the percentage of Muslim population in each of the countries of the world, has been published with interesting and exceptional quality and characteristics. The honor of presenting this service was granted by the great and merciful God to the "Geographical Organization” and the “Ministry of Defense and Support of the Armed Forces". The importance and reliability of such thematic maps are not only in the degree of accuracy and integrity of the information presented in them, accompanied by the high quality and elegance of the cartographic technical work embedded in each map, but also in the fact that It is possible that maps of this type alone replace the contents of several volumes of books.
There has been no talk about this map and what has been done to prepare it and what features are involved in this work yet, so we asked Professor Mohammadpour Kamal, who has been responsible for the compilation and technical supervision of the project, to introduce the map and its features, along with the efforts and the stages of the work, which he, with all the greatness of the work, has written this writing with all possible modesty due to his decisive role in it. The printing of this map proves that the Holy Land of Iran, in the light of the blessings of Islam, is the place of great efforts and praise-worthy services. Sepehr deems it necessary to thank all those involved in this great "Islamic-technical" service, especially Professor Pourkamal. Other people mentioned in this article also deserve to be commended and thanked.
