The electric and magnetic field effect on human health and environment is a matter concerned in recent years. In this work, electric and magnetic field exposure level assessment has been made for a residence and safety zone areas near a sample of 132KV power line in Baghdad city. GIS spatial analysis maps are introduced using Arc Map GIS version 10, the utilization of such maps is very important for exposure assessment and further future studies. Statistical analysis for measurements data was made using IBM SPSS Version 22. The maximum electric and magnetic field exposure level was 110 V/m and 193 mG respectively. The magnetic field exposure in this study is greater than standard limits issued by Switzerland and lower than standard limit issued by USA (Florida) and ICNIRP. There is no national Iraqi limits. Exposure level exposure values unveil the necessity of imposing new recommendations and limits and reducing exposure level in residential areas as low as possible
