Altan, M. Orhan

CI PA 2003 XIX th International Symposium, 30 September - 04 October, 2003, Antalya, Turkey
inventory and share it by using GIS technology. The sample of
this alternate is consist of the informations of 5 historical
buildings in Ortahisar- Trabzon. When we select a building on
the vectoral map of Ortahisar, it allows us to see whole
informations about the building and its place in this application.
“GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing,
manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced
information, that means data identified according to their
locations” (Anonymous 6). GIS combines layers of information
about a place to give you a better understanding of it. What
layers of information you combine depends on your purpose—
finding the best location for a new building, analyzing
environmental damage and similar types of information about a
city, to help reach a decision about the location of a new
housing development that has minimal environmental impact
and which is located in a low-risk area and is close to a city
center, classifying buildings and natural beauties and so on.
“GIS works with six steps. These are relating information from
different sources, data capture, data integration, projection and
registration, data structures and data modeling” (Yomrahoglu,
One of the main benefits of GIS is improved management of
your organization and resources. A GIS can link sets of data
about the buildings and their environment, locational data, such
as addresses, which helps departments and agencies share their
data. By creating a shared database, one department can benefit
from the work of another—data can be collected once and used
many times. GIS provides improvement of organizational
integration, making better decisions and maps.
The easy access linked pages which are prepared simply, being
avaible for practical usage and also the datas which are always
checked and upgraded are gived importance in the study. The
rapid changes in the informatics technology makes an important
issue current. Computer systems are always upgrade themselves
in hardware and software so this web-page can loose its
importance in a few time later. It is meaned that the study must
adapt itself to today’s technological conditions in hardware and
software technology. Also it is necessary to check for the
informations in certain periods to define if there is a missing
datum or a datum need to be add. It is needed to apply these
steps into study to have it reliable. Also it is thought to have the
study translated into different languages to make it easily
understood by other nations.
In contemporary life, the common problem of humanity has
been excepted as an accelerated necessary for the
documentation and recording process of the historic heritage.
The results of this study help to developed reliable database can
be a contribution to create the local and national digital cultural
inventory. Further, it is an important issue to share them on the
electronic or digital environment when we consider them as a
universal cultural heritage for humanity.
