Geographic information systems have great potential، as these capabilities were employed in updating the topographic map. Adhamiya district in the city of Baghdad was chosen as a case  study، where an update was made to the old topographic maps with a scale of 1/10000 that were drawn in 1979، and work was done to draw a digital base map These maps are made using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software، and then these maps were updated after the major changes that occurred in the region، relying on modern satellite visualizations for the year 2022 as well as the field study.
