To study, issuance of license for cement factory establishment is chosen as a case study. Investigation of the current process of certificating a cement factory establishment shows necessity of complex official process and long time consumption; also environmental considerations are not regarded properly. Then using concepts and aims of e-government and the abilities of geographical information systems in analyzing and spatial decision making, a new method to issue the industrial license is suggested. To show and evaluate the proposed method, architecture of a web based distributed geographical information system is designed and implemented. The results of the research indicate that the issuance of license for cement factory establishment using recommended method is performed in less time and with regarding the environment issues. The suggested process/method can be regarded as a pattern for creating spatial enabled e-government in industrial and mineral activities of the country.
