CREATING FOREST INFORMATION SYSTEM: A CASE STUDY FOR ISTANBUL KURTKEMERI FOREST ADMINISTRATION

By F. Kurtcebe

Abstract

decisions and during this period we have to think about all physical conditions, human factors, financial problems, the results of our decisions in long period etc … Technology helps us in different ways. One is Geographis Information Systems (GIS). We can process both spatial and non-spatial data together. We can make queries-analysis or change informations. So we can be faster, more effective and economic in our works. The aim of the study is creating a forest information system to help problems and duties of forests. Forests are very important treasures for all of the world. They are like world’s lungs and ours too. Forests are spread out wide areas. That makes harder to protect and do other duties about them. We need a good system to follow all steps of works or to find where the problem is. Geographic Information Systems help us at the moment. First i decided my working area, it is Kurtkemeri Forest Administration. I had some meetings in this place. I took some paper maps (1:5000). I tried to understand their needs, problems, take informations to use in system. I used MapInfo Professional 6.0 version in this study. I decided to use polygon for “stand areas ” and line for “roads”. Then the map digitized in AutoCAD and translated to MapInfo Professional 6.0. I enclosed the areas, modified tables for attributes. I entered for all areas these attributes. When you click on the area you can see these informations. I also did some queries on informations. The results of queries can be seen on the screen as a table and we also can see on the map. It is possible to make some thematic maps up to your needs in MapInfo Professional 6.0. So in this study a thematic map about stand areas was created. As a result after this study in Kurtkemeri Forest Administration, if this kind of studies cover all forest areas, it will be so easy t
