Türk Telekom has been conducting R&D studies on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) since 1998.
As a result of the pilot studies conducted with MapInfo in data generation, fiber and 118 projects, it was concluded that the most suitable configuration for the whole of Turkey is the establishment of a MapInfo-based GIS system in a centralized structure. Türk Telekom Geographic Information Systems Project, prepared for this purpose, provides the digitization of the entire Turkey’s network inventory, the entry of inventory information and their analysis, queries and reports.
Başarsoft has been working in this project since 2008, working with approximately 50 personnel in Türk Telekom Ankara and Istanbul offices. For the digitization of the network inventory, additional applications have been developed that facilitate the generation of data in certain formats, customized for the institution.
A website has also been designed in order to enable the use of the prepared data in other operations of the institution.
