Typologies and Atlas of the Ottoman Cities (1450-1700), TUBITAK 3501.
The aim of this project is to reach a standard level of information about and typologies of the cities in order to study them in comparative perspective with both the Ottoman cities themselves and the other world cities.
This requires identifying and mapping (via GIS tools) the common features of the cities first on the basis of data given in the primary sources and secondary sources and then to explore the cities’ distinctive, similar and different features in relation to other cities. That is what the project is aiming at succeeding by focusing on the existing studies on the Ottoman cities.
