The aims of this project are the modernization of the topographical elevation data systems of the country in accordance with technological and scientific developments and new metrological approaches as well as the development of the infrastructure for local gravity data which are used in the fields of geophysics, geology and mineral exploration. The participants of the project are the General Command of Mapping (HGK) as the coordinator, General Directorate of Mineral Research and Exploration (MTA), Turkish Petroleum (TPAO), TÜBİTAK Marmara Research Center (TÜBİTAK MAM) and TÜBİTAK National Metrology Institute (TÜBİTAK UME).
The outputs of the projects;
- Adoption of newer and more accurate elevation measurement techniques
- A higher resolution gravity map of Turkey
- A comprehensive data set of gravity data for Turkey.
