Introduction: The most important event in the history of human fascioliasis in Iran is the disease epidemic in Gilan province. According to this history, investigating the impact of climate change, especially rainfall, on this disease IS necessary. The aim of this study was to determine the spatial distribution of human fascioliasis in Gilan and Mazandaran provinces using Geographic Information System (GIS), climate-based mapping 
Methods: Data on human fascioliasis in Gilan and Mazandaran provinces were collected from the Ministry of Health and Meteorological Information Center of Iran's Meteorological Organization, then the prevalence or incidence of the disease calculated and data storage, Processed and mapped by ArcGIS software version 10.4.
Results: In 2016, 41 cases of human fascioliasis in the northern provinces of the country, three cases were reported in Mazandaran province and 38 cases in Gilan province, and the most cases of human fascioliasis in Guilan province were in 14 cases and in second place in Anzali with 11 cases, statistical analysis of meteorological data (rainfall) and outbreak showed that at a critical point of rainfall of 1100 mm / year, the prevalence of disease with higher and lower rainfall was statistically significant (P = 0.44).
