This study aims to develop a method to investigate the relationship between socio-economic status of village settlements and some topographic variables using geographical information systems (GIS) and spatial statistical methods. The study area is Çankiri province, a mountainous region that lays at the northeast of Ankara. 331 villages represented by areal units are used in this study. 195 variables are used to extract a single socio-economic status indicator. First, all the variables are divided under three groups, namely economic, social and service. Principal Components Analysis (PCA) is used to construct an index indicating socio-economic status. The parameters that represent natural environment are; mean elevation, mean slope, mean aspect and the ratio of high quality soil in the total area, for each settlement unit. The data is visualized by choropleth, cartogram and 3D techniques. Then it is explored by using correlograms, spatial moving averages and geographically weighted regression (GWR). Finally linear non-spatial regression and spatial regression methods are utilized in order to establish a relation between the socio-economic status and environmental parameters.

Preparation of a geotechnical microzonation model using Geographical Information Systems based on Multicriteria Decision Analysis
Kolat, Çağıl; AYDAY, Can; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi (2006-11-03)
The purpose of this study is to develop a geotechnical microzonation model using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) based on Multicriteria Decision Analysis (MCDA). As study area, the Eskisehir downtown area has been chosen. Eskisehir is one of the most rapidly growing cities in central Turkey. The model inputs include slope, flood susceptibility, soil, depth to groundwater table, swelling potential, and liquefaction potential. The weight and rank values are assigned to the layers and to the classes of ...
A GIS based spatial data analysis in Knidian amphora workshops in Reşadiye
Kıroğlu, M. Fatih; Tuna, Numan; Düzgün, Şebnem; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2003)
The main objective of this study is to determine main activity locations and correlation between different artifact types in an archaeological site with geographical information systems (GIS) and spatial data analyses. Knidian amphora workshops in Datça peninsula are studied in order to apply GIS and spatial statistical techniques. GIS capabilities are coupled with some spatial statistical software and spatial data analysis steps are followed. Both point and area datasets are examined for the effective anal...
Relationship between settlement location and morphological landform : a GIS method applied to Çankırı province
Sürmeli, Biricik Gözde; Toprak, Vedat; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2003)
This study aims to develop a method to investigate the relationship between settlement locations and the morphological landforms using geographical information systems (GIS). The method is applied to Çankiri province, a mountainous terrain, which is covered in seventy-seven sheets of topographic maps at 1:25.000 scale. Three databases are created and used in this study: 1) Settlement database comprising various topographic and landform attributes of 891 settlements, 2) Morphological landform database compos...
An approach for landslide risk assesment by using geographic information systems (gis) and remote sensing (rs)
Erener, Arzu; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2009)
This study aims to develop a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) Based systematic quantitative landslide risk assessment methodology for regional and local scales. Each component of risk, i.e., hazard assessment, vulnerability, and consequence analysis, is quantitatively assessed for both scales. The developed landslide risk assessment methodology is tested at Kumluca watershed, which covers an area of 330 km2, in Bartın province of the Western Black Sea Region, Turkey. GIS and RS t...
Development of an elasto-plastic analytical model for design of grouted rock bolts in tunnels with particular reference to poor rock masses
Osgoui, Reza Rangsaz; Karpuz, Celal; Department of Mining Engineering (2007)
The analysis presented in this thesis provides a methodology for grouted bolts design, based on empirical and analytical methods. Hence, the main objectives of this thesis are to offer practical means for better characterisation of poor to very poor rock masses, to better predict support pressure, and to develop an elasto-plastic analytical model for design of grouted bolts in tunnels excavated in such rock masses. To improve the applicability of the GSI (Geological Strength Index) in poor to very poor rock...
