Attributes in *yol kod" table; 
bolme no : stand number (this is the common column 
with mes alan table so it is used to combine 
two tables) 
yol ad : name of road 
3. Sytem Implementation The translation of the design 
into something that really works is the implementation stage. 
Following that comes usage and maintenance. AutoCAD for 
digitizing and MapInfo Professional 6.0 as GIS software were 
used which are available in YTU Cartographic Laboratory. The 
paper map (1:5000) digitized in AutoCAD and translated into 
MapInfo Professional 6.0. Stand areas are digitized as lines 
were then converted to polygon by enclosing. Roads also 
translated to lines. In usage, some thematic maps were created 
and some queries were implemented about stand areas and 
roads. Examples about thematic maps are below:

General View of Kurtkemeri Forest 
Forests are like world’s lung's and ours, too. Forest 
management plans are spread out wide areas that includes 
complicated graphic and non-graphic data. These plans are 
long-term plans. So for a succesful result, data must be current 
and dependable. All works about forests depend on areas. If any 
mistake happens in these plans, it is so hard to correct it later. 
As a result : 
e [tis better to use hybrid GIS because some geospatial 
data can be collected from satellite images. It is 
important to use raster format except vector format. 
e It is possible to develop data collection methods in 
GIS. So the system becomes more economic and it 
helps users to be more careful use of time and work. 
e It is possible to store and access all kinds of digital 
data in a database so thematic maps can easily be 
created from the database. 
e The analysing and querying talent of GIS can be used 
in different kinds of projects (example; against forest 
fires GIS helps in defining the fire risk areas; with 
overlaying satellite images that are taken from 
different dates, it is possible to find the temporal 
differences-changes in forests).
