This study aimed at examining the geographical distribution of skin cancer (BCC type) in Ardabil province through GIS. Methods: This cross-sectional study has been done on 131 cases of skin cancer with type BCC in 2007-2014. The required information such as age, sex, occupation, and the locus of BCC, was extracted from the patients' records based on their place of residence. Data analysis was performed using SPSS (version 20). ARC GIS (version 10) was used for drawing geographic maps. Results: 50.4% of the subjects were men and the mean age of them was 62.8±14.5 years. Of the subjects, 66.4% were from Ardabil city, 80.2% from urban population and 15.3% of the subjects were smokers. Of the patients, 78.5% had developed cancer in their face. Conclusions: Results showed that for control of cancer, educational interventions should be given priority, and people should be instructed about the use of personal protection equipment, like proper sunscreen cream, hat and sunshade in the workplace, as far as it is possible.
