Erenler District in Adapazarı Greater Municipality was selected as the pilot area. 1/1000 scale as-is map is the basis of the study. In addition, three dimensional topographic map is used so as to obtain general information. Maplnfo 5.5 is used in map-based studies. Three dimensional studies are performed by using Vertical Mapper 2.3. Also, databases are created by using MS Access XP. The graphical user interfaces are formed via Visual Basic 6.0. Map Basic 5.0 GIS programming language is used to create a connection between map and attribute data. This system allows users to perform different analysis and queries to find the optimum solution for the customers.
