this study aimed to spatially analyze the pattern of land use distribution in District Three of Ahvaz City. This study is applied in terms of purpose and in terms of descriptive method. This study is applied in terms of purpose and descriptive in terms of method. Study Scale includes the study of area, district and neighborhood levels. The method of data collection is document-libraries. To investigate the concentration, density, compactness, composition, continuity, dispersion, orientation and centrality and spatial autocorrelation of compression indices, Hirschman-Herfindahl concentration, Fragmentation, Simpson Diversity index, entropy and Land built density, Nearest Neighbor Analysis, Was used for geographic weight distribution and regression methods in ArcGIS software. The results of the calculations showed that the existing per capita of the land uses is 12 Square meters more than the standard per capita. Zone 2 has the highest density and compaction, while Zone 3 has the lowest density and highest dispersion. However, Zone 3 has more compactness, diversity, concentration and consistency of land uses than other Zones. The distribution of 46% of the land uses was very clustered. The orientation of land uses in the center of the region is desirable and this orientation has attracted population in the center of the region. As a result, the areas of Ahwaz's three District are at different levels in the land use distribution indices, and thus require a local land use planning plan.
