    Urban planning has gone from the past to the present day to a greater extent based on physical factors, to the extent that the basis of urban planning plans and urban plans influenced urban development and physical spaces. Itchr('39')s The city is the product of complex economic and social relations and its spatial heterogeneity reflects the processes of widespread socio-economic-cultural-social life in the context of nature in history. Understanding the pattern of spatial development in the major cities of the regions and countries is essential for the formulation of appropriate policies and the achievement of sustainable development. Achieving this also requires the use of appropriate and advanced methods and tools. This article was written with the aim of studying the spatial growth and development of Gorgan city using spatial analysis models and spatial correlation techniques using GIS. Accordingly, in order to analyze the spatial development of Gorgan, a research hypothesis was presented and analyzed through descriptive-analytical method. Accordingly, various spatial statistics and spatial correlation techniques, including cluster analysis, Moran and Gray coefficients, General G, hot spots analysis, have been used. The results show that Gorgan has experienced a cluster-dominated randomized growth pattern with the formation of two hot spots in the southern and eastern part of the city and a cold lake in the northern part.
Keywords: spatial growth pattern, spatial statistics, geographic information system (GIS), Gorgan city.
