Gaziantep is one of the world’s oldest residential area and it is center of culture and commerce with historic Silk Road. Gaziantep’s location, which is an important gateway, is within the Southeast Region of the Mediterranean region. Therefore residential and industrial areas has expanded in this city. Gaziantep, with its investments in varied sectors like industry, commerce and tourism, has risen to the forefront of Turkey’s developing cities. The population of the city of Gaziantep has been increasing as a result development of the regional economy due to investments, and influence of immigration. With a population of over 1.000.000, it is the 8th largest city in Turkey. The population of Gaziantep has experienced an annual growth of 50.000 per year, with the numbers counting of 1.700.763 in 2010, 1.753.596 in 2011, and 1.799.558 in 2012. Parallel to the rising population, the rapid spread of residential and industrial areas has been observed. Due to the fast and economic solutions provided by remote sensing data and data processing techniques, these techniques have been used in a variety of disciplines such as ; urban and region planning, mapping processes, observation of agricultural yield and yearly yield estimates, and the determination of water surface areas. Remote sensing is one of the fastest and most preferred methods of producing information about the land use/cover of cities and countries. High resolution satellite images are extremly useful to be used for spatio-temporal monitoring of cities, planning and development plants and decision support for city managers and planers. Fast, accurate, cost and time effective map production and urban planning projects could be succesfully using remote sensing technologies. In this study, the aim of project is producing usable land use data for urban planning projects and to determine residential growth with satellite images of Gaziantep. Producing land use/cover maps with high tematic details from satellite images for Urban Atlas Projects, which contibutes urban and regional planning in an orderly and quickly. Urban Atlas is a part of GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) Projects, which is funded by ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) and the European Commission (EC). Urban Atlas project has never been used in any city of Turkey. The purpose of this thesis study is to produce land use/cover maps belonging the Gaziantep with maps’ standards of Urban Atlas Project and examining to feasibility and accuracy of Urban Atlas in a pilot city of Turkey for the first time. Urban Atlas Project includes twenty classes. Four of them are their main classes. Which is artificial surfaces, agricultural, semi-natural and wetland areas, forest areas and water surface areas.
