Spatial Address Registration System (SARS) Pilot Project was tendered by the General Directorate of Population and Citizenship Affairs in 2014. With the project, geographical and non-geographical address data held by the authorized administrations (Municipalities, Special Provincial Administrations and Organized Industrial Zones) were matched with the data in the existing Address Registration System (AKS) and collected from the field in the MAKS database structure and integrated into the system. Within the scope of the project, all of Afyonkarahisar, Yalova, Elazig, Gaziantep provinces and 3 districts in Erzurum city center were selected as pilots.
The project was carried out in three stages. These are Front Office Studies, Field Studies and national address database matching studies.
