Miandoab, as its name suggests, is situated in a delta region of the two rivers Zarrineh-Rud and Simineh-Rud. Miandoab enjoys very fertile soil and excellent Mediterranean climate. Due to the establishment of a sugar factory in the early 20th century, there has been large industrial activity compared to nearby towns.
The city of Miandoab is on the Zarriné-Rūd river and located in the center of the plain that slopes down to Lake Urmia. It is 1,314 metres (4,311 ft) above the sea level, at 46°6′E latitude and 36°58′N longitude.
The city is a transportation connection point between West Azerbaijan Province and East Azerbaijan Province. Thus, the city has been a transportation crossroads between the two large provinces, and has attracted political and economic interest from local and international governments.
