The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of WebGIS implementation based on Web.02 in order to promote the construction and operation of sports projects in Alborz province. The research method was descriptive and field survey and the research area of Alborz province was selected and fully examined. In this regard, using the SWOT-ANP method, internal and external factors affecting the implementation of WebGIS based on Web.02 were identified by examining the documentation and survey of experts and The ANP method and paired comparison questionnaire were used to calculate the final weights and adopt the best strategy. The results show that WO strategy has the highest weight and is considered as the best strategy. According to the results, it is possible to implement Web-based GIS based on WEB-2 depends on eliminate weaknesses of the organization in order to make the best use of opportunities in Alborz province that will not be achieved except by training staff and creating an integrated database of sports spaces in the province.
