The area was divided with a regular grid (1 x 1 km), and in each cell a sampler was randomly placed. The sampling grid was constructed to take into account the morphology of the study area, the urban fabric and layout of industrial sites. (Fig. 10). Geographic Planning Air Pollution MonitoringNetworks in Industrial Areas by Means of Remote Sensed Images and GIS Techniques 19 coordinates of each sampler were collected in order to input the concentration value in the GIS geo-database. The quality of data was ensured placing samplers as replicates and blanks.

If we compare the pollutants distribution (Fig. 4) with the Saudi Arabian national air quality standard (Table 2), it is clear that some regions within the study are experiencing high level of air pollution threats. For this study, the social and cost objective data of each grid were also modeled as fuzzy variables according to the fuzzy scale mentioned in Table 1.
