Abstract

Nowadays, information has possessed an easily accessible status swiftly with the advancement of technology. The significance of education institutions and organizations in terms of sharing information cannot be ignored.  In this respect, in order for the universities to help users make conscious decisions regarding possible planning and maintenance-renovation in the future, the campus equipment information system (CUFIS) which is formed to produce reliable information by providing that the data are connected to each other and presenting the users a deeper perspective will be used in many fields in the forthcoming years. 

Within the scope of this study, a data base was created by adapting entity property information of 1434 urban furniture units available within Sehitler Campus of Kafkas University into GIS setting. The urban reinforcement elements within the scope of the database are as follows: lighting units include seating elements, garbage bins, signage and information boards, billboards, bus stops, water items and fountains, flower boxes and other items. Furthermore, identity cards were prepared for each equipment unit as a result of inventory works belonging to equipment units.

With the created data base, the statistical analyses were obtained. The type, number, physical and functional characteristics of the equipments found in the compound, such as damage status, have been identified. In addition, they were included in comparing the area of research to the distribution of equipping elements to structural units by splitting it into parcels. In conclusion, the activities of landscape design and planning are discussed in accordance with the analyses and findings and the attention was paid to the need for CUFIS by providing some suggestions.
