An Examination of the Relation between Urban and Geomorphology Using GIS: The Case of Tekirdağ
This study aimed at explaining the geomorphological features of Tekirdağ city and describing the relationship between such features and urban area. The hypothesis of the study was, “geomorphological features play an important role in the establishment and development of cities.” The present study was significant in that it demonstrated that the geomorphological characteristics of densely populated settlements could be explained via Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques. Landforms, elevation, slope, and aspect features, which could be considered basic geomorphometric parameters, were determined, and their relationships with urban area were investigated. GIS techniques were employed in the creation of thematic maps and in the analysis of parameters. It was found out that Tekirdağ city contained various kinds of landforms. It was understood that more than half of the area (68%) was on a sloping land, which led to a landslide risk. The present study indicated that GIS based geomorphological studies could provide more systematic data. In addition, the study revealed that GIS could be employed in similar studies as an instrument helping effective decision making.
