Physiographic parameters have a significant effect on the hydrological characteristics and water regime of the catchment area and are therefore important that there is a relationship between them and the flowing waters of the area and recognizing these physiographic properties in one area and having information about weather conditions in the area, can provide a fairly accurate picture of the quantitative and qualitative functioning of the hydrologic system. The major physiological characteristics include: area, main channel length, slope, shape, height, posture and height, equivalent rectangle, focus time and center of gravity and all these factors have been calculated by computer and in the system of geographical data. The basic information of Ghaleh-Shah in catchment area was taken from topographic maps and then finalized using field control and it was imported into GIS system and was produced with 1: 2000 scales. In the last step, supplementary information was added to the produced maps using aerial photos of 1: 20000.
