Introduction: Tuberculosis has high mortality and burden in the world. Nowadays TB incidence is increasing. Observe, follow and compare disease's Incidence is necessary for prevention, management and control them. The purpose of this study is TB incidence surveillance in different times and places of Iran.
Methods: 10651 TB cases that registered on Iran stop TB system in March 2014 to March 2016, analyzed retrospective for TB incidence. Possibility to compare, Data split according to the Diagnosis time. For selecting parameters, effective environmental parameters extracted from previous studies. At first, effective variables were evaluating with correlation coefficient tests then available environmental data's information layer develop and integrate by ARcMap 10.3.
Results: 8 integrated maps of temperature, wind and climate that separated according to states, were showing that in regions with high temperature, wind and warm and dry climate we have more TB incidence. In summer the incidence is less than other seasons.
Conclusion: The disease condition observation in states by different colors on different times, allowed health politicians to compare and understand the statistics.
