Applying GIS functionality provides a powerful decision support in various application areas
and the basis to integrate policies directed to citizens, business, and governments. The focus is
changing toward integrating these functions to find optimal solutions to complex problems.
As an integral part of this approach, geographic data sharing model for Turkey were
developed as a new approach that enables using the data corporately and effectively. General
features of this model are object-oriented model, based on ISO/TC211 standards and
INSPIRE Data Specifications, describing nationwide unique object identifiers, and defining a
mechanism to manage object changes through time. The model is fully described with
Unified Modeling Language (UML) class diagram. This can be a starting point for geographic
data providers in Turkey to create sector models like Emergency Management that has
importance because of the increasing number of natural and man-made disasters. In
emergency management, this sector model can provide the most appropriate data to many
"Actors" that behave as emergency response organizations such as fire and medical
departments. Actors work in "Sectors" such as fire department and urban security. Each sector
is responsible for "Activities" such as traffic control, fighting dire, emission, and so on.
"Tasks" such as registering incident, fire response, and evacuating area are performed by
actors and part of activity. These tasks produce information for emergency response and
require information based on the base data model. By this way, geographic data models of
emergency response are designed and discussed with "Actor-Sector-Activity-Task" classes as
an extension of the base model with some cases from Turkey.
