Özet

The paper highlights the importance of establishing an appropriate database of information to assist planners in site selection and decisions regarding land usage. Such a database should include geological and geotechnical information, but this should be assessed from a geoenvironmental viewpoint. The city of Gumushane in the Black Sea region is discussed, as this area is close to the North Anatolia Fault Zone and there is a shortage of "suitable" ground for development.
