Geographic Information System and Remote Sensing

The definition of GIS is to collect the information in a single system, transfer it to the computer, store it, analyze it using different scientific and practical models, question it, extract it on large papers on the map as desired, display it, display the data with graphics and place it on the map again. The fact that it stores the data with reference to the earth in the computer according to the real coordinate system means that the place of each information on the world will always be the same, which shows that the places of millions and even billions of information on the same system can be constantly owned and analyzed with their own information. The information entered must be correct and complete, and this information must include not only what is where, but also the details of the physical structures. It is possible to display this information on the map by associating it with each other as a whole, and to obtain all kinds of information and to process it on the maps if desired.

GIS; It is an information system that supports planners, managers, academics, in short, people and institutions from all walks of life, to make decisions in line with their goals. GIS components that can be counted as hardware, software, data, personnel and purposes are all equally important. In other words, it is not possible to set up a system by only purchasing a GIS computer program. GIS, whose application areas are developing very rapidly in the world, is unfortunately not used enough in our country. GIS, which finds application in almost all professions, is used very effectively by developed countries, especially in Earthquake Damage Reduction studies, Disaster Management, and Emergency Response system, Early damage estimation.

 Detection and monitoring of damaged areas in earthquakes, monitoring of temporary settlements with their capacities, analysis and selection of new settlements, keeping and querying property information, keeping and querying land use information, monitoring squatters, air, ground and sea pollution maps, environmental protection plans. There are many application areas such as preparation of transportation and public transportation plans, production and revision of digital maps, issuance of occupancy permits, monitoring and inquiry, infrastructure networks and plans, preparation of expropriation plans, firefighting and garbage collection services.
