Abstract Geographic Information System is a global phenomenon that has revolutionized technology and is receiving much attention currently. To objectively conceptualize the research context of Geographic Information System (GIS) impact on human settlement, bibliometrix and biblioshiny software packages were applied to conduct data mining and qualitative analysis. Research papers including journals and articles in the fields of GIS and Urban Areas management spanning from 2000 to 2023 were extracted. This scientific data was extracted on 8TH January 2023 in the Publish or Perish core collection database. The results indicated that: publications fell from 2000 to 2001, however, they increased a bit in 2002. There was no significant change until 2007 when there was a slight increase in publications up to 2008. Geographic Information Systems, flood-prone areas, urban areas, suitable areas, rural areas and maps are the most frequently used keywords in the field of GIS and urban areas management in recent years. Consequently, the paper concludes that the research directions on GIS impact on human settlement management in future include the following processes and mechanisms: the application of state-of-the-art GIS technologies, the introduction of GIS crime monitoring innovations for urban centers, robust GIS simulation innovations to enhance urban resilience and digitization of human settlements for promotion of sustainable, Smart and Blue Cities. Finally, research into the creation of geo-spatial database platforms and data infrastructure for human or urban centers should be promoted. This paper aims to review the literature on the significance of GIS as a powerful tool in addressing the complexities and challenges inherent in urban environments.
