Many projects have been carried out in the Turkish terranes, on 5547 number 1/25.000 scaled sheets in order to geological mapping. These maps have been updated depending on the scientific developments up to now.

5501 number sheets of 5547 number 1/25.000 scale map sheets has been made so far (~%99,2), and are archived in both paper and digitized forms. The legend of exposed rocks within the research area is given in detail by means of GIS-based softwares.

1/25.000 scaled geological maps, which are produced by Department of Geological Research of General Directorate of MTA, are available to public institutions, universities, private sector, natural persons and corporations in return for a nominal fee.
