MetadataShow full item record
One of the most difficult tasks encountered when implementing waste management practices in Turkey involves the selection of the most suitable area for a landfill. The Geographic Information System (GIS) which possesses the ability to imitate and process economic and environmental constraints, presents itself as a useful and effective decision support tool. This study will utilize the GIS to determine feasible alternative landfill areas on the European side of Istanbul, which has a high density population, showing that accurate selection results can be achieved at lower cost.
