Incorrect assumptions in the available valuation of techniques, such as don’t consider to factors influencing and input not correct, that cause errors in the final results of the land use evaluation. Therefore, to enhance the accuracy and closer reality results from the two procedure for entering uncertainties and standardization, and DEMATEL-ANP to eliminate the problem of independence parameters, also to see the feedback and interaction among the factors used in the evaluation. In this study it was to evaluate the urban land use evaluation of Birjand's Watershed and to study the use of the DEMATEL-ANPFUZZY Technique. This assessment is based on 14 sub-factors, studied in two main classes of environmental and infrastructure factor. Then each factor was fuzzy and weighted by DEMATEL-ANP. Then protection map as a layer of banning was deleted and The final map was prepared for urban evaluation of Birjand basin using weighted linear combination method, according to each pixels was found potential for made urban land use. According to this method, it was revealed that 85/1%, 10%, 15/65%, and 23 % of the study area has a high, medium, low and unable capability to make the urban land use.
