An in process development on the website the ability to use GIS layering to examine the various provinces of Iran. When fully implemented this will be a great research tool. Each province also has information regarding its mineral wealth, recent earthquakes, etc. The site is a little hard to navigate but once one gets the hang of it there is a gold mine of information.
There is even more to the database. A handy glossary, a job board for those who do not mind working in an Islamic republic right in the middle of the global war on terrorism, and a photo gallery. Make sure you see the geotourism of Iran album.
