Program Introduction

The Map and Cadastre Program is a profession that carries out the production of maps of all sizes required by the country, surveys and applications of land-related projects. The maps produced form the infrastructure of engineering services. Urban and zoning planning, city maps, zoning plan applications, parcel planning, cadastre, topographic maps, etc. There is an intense need for map and cadastre technicians in the studies and design of highway, railway, irrigation, tunnel and similar engineering projects, in the implementation of these projects on the land, in the projects and constructions of technical services such as road, water, sewerage. The field of occupation of the map and cadastre profession is to follow the technology closely, to make calculations and drawings in computer environment from the information obtained from the field with electronic measuring instruments, to use the Positioning Devices (GPS) that can measure via satellites, which is one of the latest technological developments.

The program aims to train technical personnel who establish a relationship between engineers and technicians in the map sector. Graduates of the program receive the title of Map and Cadastre Technician.


Akdeniz University, Antalya Vocational School was established on 20.07.1982 in Antalya. Antalya Vocational School was divided into 2 (two) Vocational Schools, namely Technical Sciences Vocational School and Social Sciences School, with the decision of the Higher Education Executive Board dated 11.03.1993. As of this date, Vocational School of Technical Sciences was restructured as a separate unit. Map and Cadastre Program, Antalya Vocational School has provided education and training in Çallı Campus since its establishment. When it was the Vocational School of Technical Sciences, it continued its education and training with 1 lecturer and 6 lecturers on the central campus. With the establishment of the Geographic Information Systems Program in the 2014-2015 academic year, the courses are carried out together by these instructors.
