Abstract

The study carried out in the Kocasinan District, one of the central districts of Kayseri; it was carried out in order to shed light on the need and importance of landscape planning in an area where settlements are increasing rapidly and where incorrect land use is observed. The aim of the study, which is an ecological planning-based research based on the use of data on natural resources in determining the land use potential of an urban area, and the transfer of these data to physical planning, is aimed to examine the status and potential suitability of residential areas. For this purpose, while examining the natural structure of the research area, within the scope of eligibility criteria for residential areas; soil, topographic structure and geology were studied under the headings. In existing land uses; settlement areas and water surfaces were determined. In the study, mappings were made with Geographic Information Systems techniques (by using Google Earth Pro and OpenStreetMap programs as well as Arc GIS 2010 program and data taken from LANDSAT (2016) and ASTER (2011) images as a base). The 'Linear Combination Technique', one of the Multi-Criteria Analysis Methods, was used. As potential eligibility criteria in the determination of residential areas; Potential suitability map was created for settlement areas by considering land capability classes, slope and geological formations. Then, the contradictions between the existing land uses and the potential suitable areas were determined and suggestions were made for the settlement areas, taking into account the environmental plan and the zoning plan, and it was aimed to eliminate the contradictions.
