There are three types of the topographic maps are used to study apart of Mesopotamian plain, Iraq, contour lines, slop map and Aspect map under Geographic information system (GIS). the study area located in between latitudes 33 N and longitudes 33 E, Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is used to produce these maps, The results of contour map referred to there are five classes for elevations were represented in contour lines, Elevations values were less than=10, 11-20, 21-30m, 31-40, and 31-90. All the elevation in the study area begins to decrease as we move for the South, east and west. There are three types of slop, Low-type of slop covers a large part of the study area then medium-slop and Higher-slop. That means most the study area is flat. The Entisol soil order and sub soil order Fluvent covered the study area.
