Boundaries
 

Turkey 

Administrative boundaries are an essential tool for any geo-spatial analysis. For Turkey, there are national administrative boundaries and names which are compatible with the NUTS system. In addition, there are higher fragmentation units based on Census data.

Postcodes

Postcode mapping is widely used for business analysis. This is a key instrument for mapping and analysing customers, the commercial environment and suppliers in terms of their spatial relationships. It also has major implications for lifestyle analysis in terms of wealth, education, health and other aspects of the environment.

One can produce thematically shaded maps, or simply search within boundaries to identify spatial trends in business and consumer demographics, marketing response rates, sales territories, school catchments and similar.

Postcode products for Turkey (TR-PostMap) developed by Geo Strategies cover the National level.

Postcodes are not yet used within Turkish Provinces.  Please contact Geo Strategies for an update on the latest situation if this is a critical requirement.

There are two types of PostMap products available for Turkey: Centroids and Boundaries. In turn, the Boundary products are available at two different resolutions: High Resolution and Low Resolution. High Resolution boundaries are for the most demanding of applications. Low Resolution boundaries are intended for use with thematic mapping, the creation of large territories (e.g. Sales territories), or other applications where positional accuracy is less important.
