ABSTRACT

The problems caused by today’s rapid urbanization have become significant in the
management of cities and metropolitan areas. With the effect of technological
advancements and industrialization, problems related with management, planning,
engineering and natural resources are increasingly becoming hazardous especially for
those living in cities and city management is to be handled based on information
system. Therefore, it is compulsory to use Urban Information Systems (UIS) to manage
cities better and make optimal use of information.
In Turkey where UIS development works are carried out rapidly, Local administrations
simultaneously carry out studies to form Municipality Management Information System
and Urban Information System. MIS (Management Information System) database
which was previously kept only as automation of registry is integrated with the Urban
Information System by relating it with geographical information. In Turkey, for the
integration and use MERNIS (Central Demographic Information System), TAKBIS
(Land Registry Cadastres Information System) and National Address Information
System projects in UIS studies, municipalities need spatial base map. The production
and updating of these base maps which are used in Urban Information System studies is
a must. The compulsion to form “UIS” stated in Municipal Law gave acceleration to the
development of this system in municipalities. Within this scope, problems encountered
in UISs emerged in Turkey.
In this study, the workings of Osmaniye Municipality has made so far to develop
Management Information System and Urban Information System and their aims and the
problems encountered in this process are discussed and presented.

Keywords: Urban Information System, Province of Osmaniye, Geographical
