This research is focused on the way in which demarcation took place between Iraq's maritime borders on the one hand and the Kuwaiti side on the other. Through satellite technology (Landsat8) and GIS can be identified the area and how the demarcation was done. The most important in addition, positive points of the demarcation have been explained. It was given a full description of the importance of the economic zone and Highlighting Iraq's most important marine facilities. More than one map of Iraq can be integrated and redesigned by GIS. This work has been talking about the most important vital installations in the region (Iraqi port of Faw AL- Kabeer and Mubarak port of Kuwait) and put them in Comparison with the negative and positive aspects affecting on two sides.
