Therefore, the aim of this study was determining the growth pattern, its causes, and consequences as well as controlling sprawl growth methods in Tabriz and Isfahan cities. This study was an applied research, which had used descriptive-analytical research method. Statistical data was used for measuring the growth pattern of Tabriz and Isfahan cities.
