Abstract

Public services, including fuel and gas station services are among the most important services that reflect the extent of development witnessed by cities and the standard of living of the population. They also represent important facilities that provide continuous services to residents. The present study adopts the analytical approach and the use of GIS in Statistical analysis, Ministry of Oil and the Ministry of Housing and Construction criteria, and the spatial average center to determine the diameter of the center circle. The number of stations located within the circle of the center was (51) stations. Whereas, those located outside the circle were (25) stations. The present study applied the standard distance to determine the degree of the standard deviation, the distributional direction of the phenomenon to determine the path of the direction of the gas stations in Babylon, which starts from the northwest of Al-Musayyab district to the southeast of Al-Qassim district, and the analysis of the nearest neighbor, which analyzes the distribution pattern of the phenomenon. It was found that the distribution pattern of gas stations is a confluent pattern.
